Once a year fertilizer

I recently attended a seminar promoting Pro-Ap once a year time released fertilizer. Has anyone used this? Good? Bad? Share your experience

I don't get it. How would we charge for one application?

I know this thread is over two years old.

I used a 16 -20 week fertilizer on commercial properties 2 years ago where I was there 7 times a year anyway.. I applied it in may and it lasted all summer till September.. We were able to spend more time concentrating on spraying nutgrass and cracks etc this way.. Since it was a route where we drove over a 2 day period to cover each route it also helped by carrying less products on the trucks.

Residential customers in my area want to see a fert everytime you are there.. So this extended release fert wouldn't be good for them in my opinion, but I love using it on commercial properties.

"Spoon feeding" is exactly what spread it and forget it does. It will feed more consistently than visiting the yard 4 or 5 times a year.
