Fusarium is a fungal disease of lawns. It causes grass leaves to loose colour, brown and die. Fusarium patches are circular and can grow to 50cm in diameter.
Fusarium damage can be controlled by the use of SUPER SPECTRUM. Mix 1 sachet of product to a slurry with a small amount of water then dilute with 5 litres of water. Agitate thoroughly before and during spraying.
Spray for control of red thread, mould, mildew, brown patch, smuts and other fungal diseases. Note: Fungal disease on lawns is exacerbated by stress caused by draught, poor drainage, low soil fertility, soil pH and excessively low cutting. So as well as treating with SUPER SPECTRUM add fertiliser such as TURFCLEAN & GREEN, improve drainage if over wet, water if over dry, adjust soil pH to 6.5-7.0 and raise the cutting height of your lawn mower.
Fusarium/Snow mould - Fungal disease of lawns causing circular dead patches. Snow mould is a form that is often found after snow thaw and can be identified by a pink tinge to the edge of the dead patch caused by red spores.
Warm and humid conditions in autumn encourages fusarium.
Fusarium disease is caused by a variety of fungi and infects more than just turf grasses. The turf grass species are Fusarium roseum and Fusarium tricinctum.
