Tag Archives: Fungicide

A fungicide is a chemical compound or biological organism used to kill parasitic fungi or their spores. Fungi can cause serious damage to plants including grasses. Fungicides are used in the lawn care industry to fight these fungal infections.

Fungicides are expensive

Professional fungicides are very expensive to produce. As a result they are limited to professional lawn care companies who have enough call to use them. However, they are very effective when used correctly.

Fungal infections can be very damaging to the look of fine lawns. Parasitic fungal diseases such as red thread or rust can ruin the look and kill grass.

A professional fungicide treatment can be both preventative and curative. Applied early, they can dramatically improve grass and keep it healthy.
