Q:What is the difference between the granular and spray options?
by|Jul 30, 2020
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Jeff, I don't think there is a difference but in my opinion the granular would last longer. We tend to have a lot of rain in the northeast . The spray is easier and you need a spreader for the granular. Hope this helps. Kate

A:  Hi Jeff! Both the spray and the granule use the active ingredient of Propiconazole to control listed lawn fungus so you can use whichever version would be more convenient for you to apply. You may apply every 2 weeks as needed to control an active fungus or monthly when used as a preventative. Jessica

    Answer This Question

    A:  Thankfully, the product is just a fungicide and would not harm the turf unless the outdoor temperatures would happen to exceed 85 degrees before watered in and allowed to dry completely. Jessica

      Q:Will this product keep mushrooms from growing on my lawn
      by|Jul 16, 2020
      5 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Worried, I have put this down 3 times and I still have a few mushrooms. It did help but if you have not of trees you still may get some mushrooms. Hope this helps. Kate

      by|Jul 30, 2020

      A:  I've used this product about 4 years and my experience has been that it can "help" but not prevent mushrooms. I've never had great success with any particular method. I've tried vinegar and water in a spray bottle, and it works, but you have to be careful because it'll kill grass as well. Most of the time I end up using an old 'Hula Hoe" from the '70's and cut them.

      by|Jul 30, 2023

      A:  It should control mushrooms and toadstools because they are the fleshy spore-bearing fruiting body of fungus that are produced above ground or on its own food source. The gills of the mushroom produce microscopic spores which is how they spread. Hope this helps!

      by|Jul 23, 2020

      A:  Unfortunately, it will not. We do not currently have a product on our line that will control mushrooms in your lawn. Mushrooms are a natural occurrence usually caused by organic decaying material beneath the soil. Jessica

      by|Jul 16, 2020

        A:  Doubtful but the source of your mushrooms could be part of the issue as well. If from a decaying root below lawn, mushrooms will be inevitable based on my experience. I have not seen a decrease or elimination of mushrooms when I have used this product.

        Q:Can you mow lawn before applying granules?
        by|Jul 10, 2020

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi, Doug. We recommend waiting 1-2 days after mowing to apply BioAdvanced Fungus Control For Lawns. -Madison

          A:  Yes I recommend mowing your yard first so that the granules can be dispersed into the lawn near the ground. After application you are to water the fungus control into the lawn.

          A:  Yes you can mow before just keep the grass high so it dont burn and water after the product has been put down ( do not cut lower than 4 inches )

          1 found this answer helpful

          A:  I do every time I put it on. It just seems to help the granules get to the soil faster, which is what you want. And water it in as soon as you can. That helps even more.

          by|Jul 11, 2020

          A:  I see no reason why mowing the lawn BEFORE application would be a problem. Perhaps you would want to wait at least a few days AFTER applying product before you mowed next time.

          Q:How does it work to bring brown lawn back to green
          by|Jul 6, 2020
          5 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  This product is a fungicide only that is designed to control listed lawn fungus. If the fungus is caught early it is possible that the grasses will recover on their own. If the grasses have died you may reseed 3 weeks after the fungus has been eliminated. Jessica

            A:  Please consult a professional if your entire lawn is brown. If your lawn has brown patch, a fungus, this product will resolve a fungal issue.

            by|Oct 7, 2021

            A:  This product works and this seems like a question better answered by the manufacturer because it requires product knowledge. It's a great product though it works!!! Bioadvanced: 1.877.229.3724

            by|Jul 7, 2020

            A:  This is a product that kills and controls certain varieties of fungus. Depending on the variety in your lawn, the grass will green back up very quickly (as with rust and red thread) or over time (with some care) with types like brown patch. If the grass is injured, it can bounce back fairly quickly. If grass areas have died, you'll want to consider re-seeding the area when it's cooler. I know what you are asking, but it really depends on the fungus type. Some come back faster with nitrogen applications and others with better weather conditions. It just varies.

            A:  Based on my experience with fungus in my grass, the Bioadvanced Fungus Control stopped the fungus from spreading. Once the fungus is under control, the grass will grow back on its own. This product does not grow grass. It kills the fungus that attacks the grass.

            Answer This Question

            A:  I had this same question some years ago when I had my first outbreak of rust on my lawn. I needed to know because one of the listed causes of rust is a lack of nitrogen. I couldn't find an official answer anywhere, so I simply waited until the fertilizer was well watered into the soil ( a good rain or a couple of waterings), then applied the fungus control granules. No ill effects and everything seemed to work, so I've done the same since then. If Bioadvanced or fertilizer folks see your question, they may say different. But it worked for me.

            A:  Hi Rich! You may apply the Fungus Control Granules as soon as the fertilizer has been watered in and allowed to dry. We would not recommend applying any additional fertilizer until the fungus has been controlled as fertilizer may help the fungus thrive. Jessica

              A:  You do not have to wait to apply the fungus control. I applied it a couple of days after the fertilizer. What is good about this product when you apply it just wet it down to ensure it gets to the roots. I have applied this twice and saw a significant improvement in my lawn. It feeds through the roots. Once it is under control you may apply it monthly. Hope this helps. Kate

              A:  When using this product you will want temperatures to be under 85 degrees at the time of application and until the product has been allowed to dry completely. Jessica

                A:  I've put the granules on in all kinds of temperatures. My assumption is that since it's a product that works in the soil itself, that temperature isn't the issue that a liquid application would be. And if you haven't applied it yet, I'd advise doing it on a nearly windless day. The granules are super light and wind affects them a lot.

                Q:Is this product effective for the treatment of Pythium Blight (aka Cottony Blight)?

                Answer This Question

                A:  I don't have that particular problem, but I did not see Pythium Blight listed on the bag as a fungus controlled by this product. Some sites list Mefenoxam as a preferred active ingredient for Pythium Blight. I don't know off hand what store products use this ingredient.

                by|Jun 18, 2020

                A:  Your question may require consulting with a Bayer representative directly if you can find a telephone number to call. Their packaging does not provide a detailed list of fungus types that it is designed to be effective on. I did not see a number on their packaging either so you may have to find some one that is knowledgeable on turf diseases such as your county agriculture agent. Such offices are usually very knowledgeable on very specific matters as this. Good luck.

                by|Jun 18, 2020

                A:  It is not. Sadly, we do not have a fungicide on our product line at this time that will control that particular disease Sandra. Jessica

                  Q:I live in south texas and daily temperatures are in the 90s, is it too late to try and cure my lawn or should I do it in the evening when its cooler?

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Put it on dry, let it settle and just a bit of water to water it in. Should be fine (though don’t water in the evening that just promotes the fungus).

                  by|Dec 12, 2020

                  A:  My experience is that it's never too late to control fungus. What time of day you put it on isn't an issue as this product is granular and works through the soil to the grass' roots. When I use the granular version of Bioadvanced, I always water it in as soon as I can. Next day is OK. If you do that, you'll be fine. But apply it on a day with little or no breeze. The particles are very lightweight and can easily be scattered off your path if the wind gusts. If you just have patches of fungus, the liquid Bioadvanced version that attaches to a hose is an excellent choice. That way you don't have to apply to the entire yard if it isn't necessary. Plus, I find it begins working almost immediately.

                  by|Jun 12, 2020

                  A:  The fungus develops quickly when temperatures are in the 90's. It is better to apply the product in the evening when the temperature reaches 70 degrees. Otherwise during the day when the temperature reaches 70 and above, and is humid, the fungus will develop faster. I think applications should happen every 14 days because the fungus is already present.
