Those stripes are popping. The HOC for some reason looks a fair bit lower than .8”. Must be just the camera angle.

Yeah the stripes really pop, milo has helped a lot.

It’s definitely .8”. Might do .6” tomorrow.

It’s also not as dense as it could be, got hit last fall with fungus pretty bad. It all went brown. :lol:

3/4 HOC

Looks better at this height. Cut a bunch of brown out of it on the last cut.

Fungicide went down yesterday.

Nice. You're starting to bounce back even in this brutal heat! I'm sure the grass loved the last couple downpours though. You can tell it's really starting to darken up.

Thanks! It really is. I put down milo twice at 1lbN/m, so it should darken with all the iron. I’ll be doing some foliar N/urea so it might lose some of the darkness.

The rain was nice but it was a little too much along with all this humidity, perfect for fungus. ph of rain is also much lower than my irrigation water so that’s a bonus.

Nice. It's really coming back now. You're going to be sitting pretty after the fall nitrogen blitz! Good work

Thanks, yeah it’s really taking off. Did foliar urea at .1lb/n/m two nights ago. It definitely has made it take off a little from such a small app.
