HOW THIS PRODUCT WORKS
ferti-Lome F-STOP is a systemic, protectant and curative fungicide for the control of listed diseases in established home lawns and ornamental turfgrass. Optimum disease control is achieved when this product is applied to established turfgrass in a regularly scheduled preventative program. Use this product in conjunction with turf management practices that promote good plant health and optimum disease control. The key to selecting a fungicide is the proper diagnosis of the organism causing the disease. Diagnostic kits, extension experts, or other identification methods should be used when developing disease control strategies.
HOW TO APPLY
Apply ferti-lome F-STOP uniformly over the turfgrass area using a properly calibrated drop or rotary-type spreader designed to apply granules. Before each application, calibrate the spreader according to the equipment manufacturer’s directions. Check frequently to make sure equipment is operating properly and distributing product uniformly. A more uniform application may be achieved by spreading half of the required amount of product over the area and then applying the remaining half in swaths at a right angle to the first. Avoid skips and excessive overlaps during application. Avoid the use of spreaders that apply this product in narrow rows or concentrated bands. Wash hands with soap and water promptly after use. Do not allow people or pets to contact treated area until after product dust has settled into the turfgrass, or if watered in, after the turfgrass surface in the treated area has dried.
WHEN TO APPLY
Reduce the interval between applications of this product when conditions are favorable for disease development. Unless otherwise specified, when disease pressure is high or when used as a curative, use higher rates of Ferti-Lome F-STOP and shorter application interval. Under light to moderate disease pressure apply this product at the low use rate and/or longer application intervals. To avoid pick-up, lightly irrigate treated areas soon after application. On short cut bentgrass (1/2 inch or less) when temperatures are above 80°F, apply only to dry foliage.
HOW MUCH TO APPLY
Optimum disease control is achieved when Ferti-Lome F-STOP is applied in a preventative disease control program at a rate of 4 lb per 1,000 sq. ft. See the following table for specific application rates for various diseases. Under any circumstances, do not apply more than 46 lb of this product per 1,000 sq. ft. per year.

I live in central Florida with Floratam St. Augustine and the product has done a creditable job of killing the fungus. Only problem is that the fungus keeps re-occuring and you have to continually apply the product.
