First off.. I must say thanks to all on this message board. You have been so helpful!

Now my problem.
I just treated my almost 1600sqft. St. Augustine lawn with 40lbs of cornmeal to help treat Gray Leaf Spot. My question is, should I continue to mulch my clippings or compost them until the fungus clears up?

Thanks Again!

I think the general consensus would be to continue bagging while the fungus is present. I'm sure you're doing the other recommended practices such as only watering infrequently and in the morning, only mowing when no moisture is present, and keep blades sharp. Bagging should also assist in reducing nitrogen levels, which is one of the primary methods of combating the leaf spot.

I have never bagged. I don't think it makes a difference to that particular disease.
