View Full Version : Scotts spreader setting for Crosscheck?

05-13-2007, 09:39 AM
I have a Scotts Speedy Green and don't know what setting to use to apply Crosscheck. It's not listed on the bag. The rep told me to have it opened a quarter of the way, but I just want to make sure and wanted to see if anyone knew. It says to spread 0.2 lbs- 0.4 lbs and 100-200 per acre. Little confused.

Hey I just laid down some crosscheck yesterday and I set my scotts standard spreader on 3. It worked out well. Got an inch of rain 3 hours after I put it down.

Thanks uncle salty. All they could tell me is that the product is very fine and to open it a quarter of the way. How much do you think 3 put down?

yeah its almost like spreading sand only finer. The 3 setting I think hit around the 0.3 lb. per 1000 sq ft mark. I really didnt want to go much higher than that. Prior to this, my yard looked like a bird diner. Only saw two all day today. So, maybe it works
