Switch / drag brushing

Fusarium Patch needs moisture on leaf surfaces for its spread. If turf has a heavy dew deposit and is excessively wet, switching/drag brushing will break up the larger droplets and reduce them to smaller droplets that that evaporate more easily. As switching/drag brushing can also disperse spores of established Fusarium Patch, it is possible that operations could spread the disease. However, it is thought that by dispersing liquid from the leaf, more good than harm is done.
