Prevent Anthracnose By Keeping Your Lawn Healthy
- Foliar anthracnose often occurs when your lawn is stressed from summer conditions like heat, lack of water, mowing too short, soil compaction, and even lack of nitrogen.
- Crown rot anthracnose can occur when there is too much moisture in the roots from overwatering or improper drainage combined with high traffic.
The best way to prevent anthracnose is to ensure your lawn is as healthy as possible.
Keep Your Lawn Properly Maintained
Apply Preventative Fungicides Each Season
Aim to use a different fungicide product each year when you treat your yard. It's important to use products with different active ingredients and modes of action so potential fungus in your lawn does not become resistant to fungicides.
If you want to take the guesswork out of designing a preventative disease control program that rotates between products while ensuring the products are delivered to your home when it time to apply them, check out the DoMyOwn Turf Box program.
