Red Thread

Red Thread (Laetisaria Fuciformis)

What to look for:

As the name says it all , this is red/ pink in appearance. This is due to the fungus growing on the outside of the leaf. This doesn’t kill grass but does look very unsightly.   

How to prevent: 

Aeration is a key factor. Thatch reduction, plant health . Right timing of fertilizer, but to much and to little can also red thread. Fungicides can be applied but more commonly a fertilizer is used to combat Red thread. Please speak to a member of staff here at Agrigem for advice because fertilizer rates will vary due to time of year.
