Source of Question:Ohio
Keywords:TIC Keywords: Algae control; Recommendations
Answer/Response:Algae are minute green plants that form a scum on turf wherever there is sufficient moisture and where the grass has been injured by disease or other causes. Scums of algae are usually troublesome in low, heavily watered areas. Thick growths should be raked with an iron rake or spiked to break up the scum. The affected areas should then be treated with corrosive sublimate and topdressed. Also, it would be well to curtail the watering decidedly.
