Brown patch in fescue

With the wet cool spring that we had, diseases that have not been seen much of in several years have made a reappearance in various plants around the area. One of these diseases is a fungus called Brown Patch that is showing up in fescue lawns. Ward Upham, K-State Research and Extension's horticulture expert wrote a short article explaining what Brown Patch is, as well as your options if you would decide to treat your lawn. As always, if you have questions, or would like a second opinion, you can always call your local Extension Office for help.

Community Response

The primary sponsor of the corps was the local American Legion Argonne Post 180. The bond between the corps and the Legion was permanent, and the Post routinely funded new instruments, uniforms, and travel expenses to their state and nation championship contests and conventions. While the corps enjoyed the support of the Post, it was dependent upon the generosity of the local public school systems, area businesses, foundations, anonymous donors, member families, volunteers, and its many friends and fans. Families of corps' members contributed financially, by paying nominal annual membership dues. When families were unable to meet that obligation, other ...

Sustaining Agriculture – Part I

It's interesting how the meaning of a word changes depending on what person or group is using it and for what purpose. The term organic originally meant anything pertaining to living organisms or compounds containing carbon. Today in society it has evolved to denote foods grown without the use of "chemicals" such as synthetic pesticides, hormone implants and fertilizers and/or without the use of genetically engineered organism. Natural originally denoted the world around us and today it has evolved to mean foods with little or no processing, chemical additives or in a "non-factory farm." The term sustainable has ...
