Snow Mold

This is our first snow mold application. This early application of fungicide is the first of two treatments one in Late October and our large application in December. The two types of snow mold we treat are pink snow mold and gray snow mold. Both types of snow mold can devastate golf course turf and well as your home lawn. Pink snow mold actually doesn't need snow cover to be active just wet cool conditions can create a environment suitable for this type of snow mold. However gray snow mold needs snow cover to be active. We typically see both types on the golf course on all turf areas.
