That rate probably will kill the grass, no matter how much water is used to apply it. I am doing low rate feedings every 30 to 45 days. I am not trying to apply the entire yearly requirement in one application.
Golf Greens might have the very same type treatment every 7 to 14 days. The type soil plays a big part of how successful a liquid program is. I should say that the other way. A successful liquid program is designed to the type of soil and climate. What works for you might not work for me etc.

But the bottom line is the Bottom line. I mean Profit drives the market and every market is different. So is Liquid Fert right for you?????
