Yes. Remember, you can add Iron to most any application, and it's cheap!

Yes, iron is cheap-but spray pumps are NOT! The use of liquid fert and iron will cause corrosion in the spray system. If you replace the units often-no problem, but if you want it to last 8-10 years then use granular fert with iron added.Just my opinion.

Sprayed Iron mixed with MSMA this week. First time I've sprayed these two together, hoping for good results.

I use iron all year,but it helps mostly in the summer heat.I dont want a lot of ertilizer on the greens in the summer,to high N promotes pythuim,and brown patch,so I can keep the greens a hair below my spring/fall levels of N,but I add 1-2 oz/1000 of Fe,in the spray and the greens stay deep green,and beatiful as if i had high N,without the excessive growth or disease promoting issues.I never,ever go out just to spray iron,it is always added to a mix thats already going out anyway,so it takes only a minute to measure and drop it in the tank.It is relatievely cheap too.I also spray my lawn with iron whenever i do any liquid applications.Iron is tough on the dpray pumps,no doubt,i always rinse 3-4x anyway,and have had the same pump for 6 yrs now,no trouble yet,and i spray every 1-2 weeks.

One thing to be careful of, if you do use iron, is that it can stain concrete. Be extra careful around sidewalks and driveways.

This combo has worked well for me this year.

Nice and green with yellow dying weeds then no weeds.

You should get better than good results
