Red Thread in Lawns

Sep 13, 2009 at 9:11pm  —  Kevin Frank

I recently stumbled across some nice red thread in a predominantly tall fescue lawn. Red thread is often found in lawns that are deficient in nitrogen but in an unirrigated lawn with a nice dry spell to start September, it may be as much a slow growing lawn as an undernourished lawn. For more info on Red thread see Rick Latin's tip sheet which can be accessed here.
