The Q&A Archives: what kills fungus with out killing grass

Question: what can you use to clear up patches in your lawn that looks like some type of fungus. If fertilizer is spread, it kills the grass/fungus with brown spots.

Answer: The treatment really depends upon the fungus and the type of turf you are growing. I can't diagnose the problem without seeing it but you can take a sample of the affected turf to your local cooperative extension office for positive diagnosis plus treatment strategies. I don't know exactly which office will be closest to you but here is a web page with the offices, listed by county. Hope it helps!
