Can you help me with the math, Oze? Wouldn't it be 1.5 years?

4oz/K x 6K x 9 apps = 216 oz.
2.5G is 320 oz, so 320/216 = 1.48 years

That's what I get for trying to prove something to myself by using paper and pencil instead of a calculator. I guess I proved something alright, didn't I? Thanks for the catch!

Do any of you guys store Serenade in the fridge? or that's not necessary.

Not necessary.

Curiosity Question: why is there an interest in Serenade suddenly in mid-August?

Well, I sprayed Serenade last night because of the humid weather in the next couple of days, I wonder if the seedlings from my fall reno will be affected by it or not. Now I did not spray Serenade on my reno or was I planning to do so (of course I won't step on it for another two weeks or so).

This year I faced powdery mildew, dollar spot and leaf spot. All have been untreated. My lawn has been fine up until the leaf spot. Some parts are looking rough. I've ordered Serenade Concentrate and am waiting for it to arrive. Hopefully this will slow down the problem (I dont expect a cure).

Next year I'll bulk buy Serenade and start in mid-May as recommended. Any other biofungicides I should be thinking about with the three diseases I've faced so far (powdery mildew, dollar spot and leaf spot)? TY guys.

Yeah, and Liquid Fence smells like freshly-baked cookies.

I am planning to re-write the Proactive Program in the next couple of weeks. Even I have trouble finding pieces of it sometimes, and I wrote it.
I'm starting to collect my thoughts for this upcoming spring and was curious if this article came to fruition?

No, but it could be completed before May -- it is on the list after the Soil Test Report rewrite.
