Granular slow-release with fertilizer... yes...

I tend to think that liquid fertilizer would tend to grow more thatch,,, in that it MAY be more likely to encourage roots to go above the surface of the soil for food and water... obviously granular has to DISSOLVE to be use and it dissolves at the surface, so the same problem may exist ,,, either way...

Still need a rational solution to that issue... I know that earthworms and some bugs help in that fashion and of course soil structure plays an important role,,, but it is very possible that not enough N is getting into the rootzone quickly enough to encourage ALL root to grow downward...

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
