Winter dry spot

View Larger

San Diego, Calfironia. In October, 2017, fairy ring mushrooms were present in this kikuyugrass stand. By January 2018, the mushrooms were gone, but localized dry spot caused premature dormancy of the kikuyugrass. The fairy ring fungi deposit hydrophobic polymers that prevent water from penetrating the soil. Wetting agents are needed to correct this type of localized dry spot.
