Point taken well Ric!
I often find myself talking to you as though you were right next door.........sandy loam soils.
I forget your methods is designed for your sandy clayic soil mixes. I can now see where you need more carrier to hold on to the fertilizer and the roots.
In my case, this nut job at helena Chem told me how to use granular urea in my mix. This staff member and part of the sales team advised it as my state extension agent didn't know anything other than granular for crops.
I wish I had more educated people to speak to in order to deliver a quality fertilizer in liquid applications. I would love to apply multiple things in one shot.
