Image 2. A closeup of type 1 fairy ring. The turfgrass stress (above) is usually due to multiple factors as the fungus breaks down organic matter (thatch) in the upper portion of the root zone. Settle, Jul 22, 2021
Image 3. “Water in immediately after application.”. Trying to find the fairy ring mycelium in the root zone.
