Has your early Spring Sumagreen had any benefit compared to similar lawns w/out???
I used the leftover sumagreen with my spring app for the benefit of the Humic and Fulvic acids. The Humic component to support the myco spores I added, stabilize soil pH and help make soil P more available.
The fulvic acid is available to the plant quickly.....Great stuff.
I cannot compare to other lawns, as I treated all of mine with the sumagreen and it was not a stress season on our cool season turfs here.
Like I mentioned less broadleaves than past seasons But I think this is from the benefits of the Myco.
Next season will be pulling soil samples as soils warm to look at soil food web populations......
