Topic: Coffee plant leaf fungus revisited (4 msgs / 66 lines)
1) From: Paul Goelz
Guys,
On the recommendation of a friend and master gardener, I have been 
using a product called Immunox from Spectracide on my two coffee 
plants and it seems to have done the trick.  It is a combination 
fungicide and insecticide and seems to have stopped the black and 
brown leaf problem in its tracks.
It is available both as an aerosol and as a liquid that you mix with 
water and spray from a common spray bottle (much more 
economical).  Best part is that you can get it at Home Depot.
He also said that the fungus can travel long distances and spread 
very rapidly on early morning fog and mist.

This stuff does work well and also works on lawns.  Some people have very
healthy lawns, but end up with curious bad patches.  Lawn equipment can pick
of fungus / diseases and spread it to other lawns.

Interesting you should mention that.  For years we have had 
occasional mystery patches in the lawn.  The first one looked exactly 
like someone had spilled a bit of gasoline.... the grass just up and 
died in a circular patch.  I have wondered what it was and theorized 
fungus, insects, UFOs, whatever.  Maybe it really IS fungus.

Do a search on things like:  lawn fungus, brown patch, dollar spot, fairy
ring ...
