Fairy Ring Fungicide

Lycoperdon spp., agrocybe pediades, and bovistra plumbea Fungicide

Description of Fairy Ring (Lycoperdon spp., Agrocybe pediades, and Bovistra plumbea):
Fairy ring fungus in the lawn is harmless and actually beneficial, as it is breaking down organic matter in the soil. The only downside is that it is an eyesore in an otherwise undisturbed sea of turf. The turf in the center of the fairy ring can also be darker green due to the increase in nitrogen produced by the mushrooms. Sometimes there may be dead tree roots, wood, or decaying animals under the soil in which the fungus is feeding on.
