3 2.5 gal jugs of Ferromec
2 50lb bags of Urea
300oz of Trimec 992
all mixed in 200gallons of water. Spraying at roughly 1 gal/1,000 sq ft.
My yard has gotten progressively worse this year. One part of the yard in particular, the rest of the yard I guess wasn't too bad. Some guys think I should spray straight Urea but I don't know.
My thoughts is you possibly overdosed the Urea. I know the math calculates to 50#'s per 100 gallons of water but dang...........the competition around here is putting it out at 50#'s per 200 or 25# per 100. The urea fert will draw in more of the iron and 3-way quickly. What kind of tip are you using!!?
I am putting out 3 gallons per m. and then 2 gallons with another tip.
You are spraying 4.5 acres with this tank!
maybe my math is out right now, but at a rate of 2 qts per acre in 5 to 175gallon of water per acre.......you are way off on the 3-way. Should it be 9 quarts per tank full.?
I know the cool season turf can withstand another quart per acre than the warm season turf can.
The heat has gotten to my headache.........gotta go now.
