RS 75 with adjustable A-S. The seed and fertilizer bags don't say anything about what rate or setting it should be applied. Any ideas

If it is anything like my Prize Lawn CBR III than the "N" or "O" setting will put you right at about 1lb per 1000 sq. ft. for the amount of product you are putting down. Maybe a little more or a little less depending on the size of the granule.

I do not apply often and most of the time it is just in my yard so that seems to be right but if I were applying for money I would want to know dead nuts on how much I was applying since this stuff is so costly and it is also the right thing to do.

The shindaiwa usually comes with a little plastic gauge with a tiny chain holding it to the metal frame somewhere, most bags of fert will give you a number that will correspond with the gauge.
