Look at This Deal I Stumbled Upon

I went to my local Lowes and they had marked these bags down to $1/bag. I bought all they had in the store 300 bags. Good profits this coming June.

great! Lowes does that, Ive gotten all kinds of stuff like that at times. The guys in the garden dept tell me to come in just before closing when they are getting all the clearance stuff ready for the next morning. So I can have first crack at it

Was it stored outside? Hard as a rock? What is the active ingredient? At what percent in the bag? How much does a bag cover?

What a deal! Sweet. Now everyone is headed to Lowes.

It was stored outside but under the the cover. 37% propendi and each bag cover 5k sqft. Not bad in my opinion.

I am trying to make the calculations.
15 pounds at .37 percent active ingredient pendimethalin would be .0555 Lbs Active ingredient per bag
That would be .0111 per thousand sqft
multiply by 43.56, result would be .4835 pounds pendi per acre. About a half pound.

Its too light.
Usual medium rate is 1.75g lbs AI per acre.
