Sucks that you have this. I suspected poa a in my yard, but looking at yours I'm going to have to re-evaluate a couple spots. Did you do straight gly or mixed with anything?

I don’t know if it’s the same for you g-man but I have found triv areas in my bewitched show up more visibly in September/October rather than spring. I feel the darker fall color the lawn gets this time of year makes it stand out better than in spring time. Unfortunately it becomes more difficult to treat the problem areas the later it gets. I just dug and plugged one small area a few days ago but it will more than likely have to fill in next year.

Wile, i always use AMS before adding gly. AMS helps with the N plus it binds the water calcium carbonate, so the gly is more effective. There is some research around this.

Much appreciated and I figured as such. I looked up close at my light green spots and I am certain they are triv now. I’ll add some AMS and spray tonight. Kicking myself for now starting that process a couple weeks ago when I first saw it. Side yard looks great btw!

I missed posting the Friday Reno update

09OCT2021

Reno is doing pretty good. We are having a above record October which is helping. We are having daily rains and some periods of sun. It should be nice until next week. The lawn is growing like crazy. I really can't keep up even with PGR. Yesterday I managed to mow the Reno and backyard after sunset but it was too dark to finish the front. The kids soccer practice and game end today, so that should give me more time. I'm going to do another PGR application next week. The poa t spot will get more gly. I'm not thinking on any other fert applications for now, except the Reno that gets and/urea.

Reno looks by now as a full success. Was not the case few weeks ago. Did notice the Triv just lately or you have been monitoring the spot for some time. Do you think such a late season gly app will do the work.

I noticed it two mows ago. I think it is hard to notice in the summer. I still have two months of mowing. Weekly gly now plus in spring should work.

Reno
Azoxy + propi foliar for 3hrs, then mowed and then watered in for 10min.

Constant rains and no sun has me paranoid. I need to switch fungicides if i do another one this year.

The rest of the yard is growing like crazy. I need to do PGR, but the rain storms are not giving me a window.

Hi G-man,
What is your PGR app. rate in late fall?
Let's say, if you apply 8ml per 1k in summer, do you reduce your rate now in late fall, or you keep same rate and have longer regulation period due to low temperatures?

Thanks!

I've done all of the above. One year i did full rate in October and then the weather turned really cold. The regulation was too much and it was growing, but very slow. I did not like it because it is more likely to develop a fungus. I've also let it go into rebound and i did not like the growth. I've done half rate and i like it more.

This year, because it is growing fast and the weather looks good right now, I'm going to do a full rate.

I know now to check your journal to see when the rain is heading out my way.

The rest of the yard is growing like crazy. I need to do PGR, but the rain storms are not giving me a window.

Reno update

Yesterday I had a few minutes between meetings to spray the Reno area with FEature. I know Indiana soils are high in pH and i assume this soil is too. I see a slight reaction to it.

I could not do the PGR to the rest of the yard. We had rain storms yesterday and today. It should be dry tomorrow.

It was a lot of rain 1.6in. I mowed yesterday in a soggy and muddy yard. The temps dropped and it was very windy, 25mph sustained speed. I mixed the tank with FEature waiting for the wind to slow down, but it never did. Today i finally did the PGR at 11mL/Ksqft. Hopefully this will slow down the crazy growth rate. We even had a frost this morning, but the yard is not slowing down.
