This isn't my current mix, but I have used it. How you calibrate is an other cost factor. I go a acre only putting down 3/4 lb N per thousand.

I am old school so I believe in a lot of carrier. The TG/CL types are only applying 2 to 3 gallon at most so there Tank can do more yards. By putting down 5 gallon a thousand you have less chance of Fertilizer Burn or stripping etc. Plus IMHO the fertilizer is better up taken by the turf.

One thing has me confused, you obviously use & know alot about liquid ferts but you mention yours soil is too sandy for liquids?
