A thoughtful review of your soil texture and soil structure will tell you more that any particular application in the world, BECAUSE, those apps are USELESS on bad soils... and you haven't told us whether you have bad soil texture or bad soil structure so there is really no way to evaluate whether you need 6 more apps of something else to do in a 6 months growing season...
Thanks for saying it for me. Jeez, people just don't get it. I'm currently bickering with a customer that wants 8 applications this year because "that's what her last guy used to do and it looked great." She wanted me to put down 46-0-0 right now to stay on track with what the old guy was doing. I refused.
