Question:"We realize that there is not much that can be done about fairy rings, but do you think it would be worth while to try iron sulfate or corrosive sublimate?"
Source of Question:Ohio
Answer/Response:"So far as we know there is no saitsfactory method for the control of this pest. To our knowledge wherever iron sulfate and corrosive sublimate have been given a thorough test they have failed to control the fungus. The trouble is that the fungus causing the rings grows well down in the soil. The fungicides are filtered out in the surface soil and do not penetrate deeply enough to kill the fungus. With this in mind, we have tried punching holes in the soil with an ordinary fork or with a tubulartined fork but the results have not been satisfactory. The only method of control appears to be to remove the infested soil and replace it with new soil. Of course, this is impractical on a large scale."
