Round 2 DIMENSION 0.15% 24-0-11 30%PPSCU at 1.88 lbs. per M
Round 3 34-0-0 100%PPSCU 5FE at 2.21 lbs. per M
Round 4 SOLU-CAL LIME at 5.00 lbs. per M
Round 5 24-0-11 50%PPSCU 2FE 1MN at 4.17 lbs. per M
Round 6 46-0-0 UREA PRILL at 2.72 lbs. per M

This is just accounting for my granular apps, broadleaf and insecticide will be separate.

Here's the link:

Thanks for any input you may have.
If you want a copy of the spreadsheet just PM your email address and I will send it to you.

Thanks!

I have been doing it in the fall, but I visited another company who applies in the summer and it seemed like a good idea to me because we are MUCH busier in the fall than summer. Is there a problem with that? I will take soil tests and if I find that the customer doesn't need it I won't do it.

Thanks!

Hi Runner,

The reason I upped it to the 24-0-11 was for the K. How much K do you put down in the year and when do you apply it? Thanks!

I appreciate everyone's help!

Jon

On LESCO's website, the 19-0-6 is about $5 cheaper per bag (at least with my pricing). Is that enough to make you encourage me to use the 19-0-6? Just trying to learn here... Thanks!

Ok, so what about applying 19-0-6 .0015 at 2.89 lb/M?

2.89x43.56x.0015 = .1888 x 2 = .3776

Would you do that?

That would give me .55 lbs/N on each round.

Sure. 2.89 lbs per thousand using the .15 Dimension should work well. But I am from Michigan. Your conditions are different. God luck Jon.
