I'll foliar feed all day long @ that price and the myth that it does not last is just that... a myth.
1.7 oz = less than 1/8lbs...

1.7 X 83 = 141.1 oz or 1.1 gal. just like you said...

my problem is 1/10th of that 1.7 gal is N so your actual N app is .17 of an oz... so to just get the average 1/4 lbs app. you'd need to boost this app by 23 times as much... or your app of 1/23rd of a 1/4 lb/k is pretty awesome...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
