I want the 3lb high rate not the low.
lush&green, Your concern is everyone’s. This is a fantastic product to spread but you do not want to stripe, since you only have one chance a year. Many spread twice and cross their pattern on the second application to assure an even coverage. Attached (I hope I uploaded correctly) is a document to help with the calibration. Just like every fertilizer, I encourage using the settings as a guide and more importantly check your usage against your coverage to assure proper setting.
