Obtaining the same turf quality and color rating with 1/3 less N is a benefit.
Barry, lets not turn this into a sales pitch. This could simply be showing the turf does not require the level of N being applied by the lesco fert to achieve acceptable results, and has nothing to do with more N getting to the roots.

No sales pitch intended. I may or not be off base as to why this fertilizer works so well. This particular study was performed to provide some scientific data to substantiate testimonials from turf grass managers.

Have any of you tried BIO-GREEN-- 5.0.1 or 20.0.1 w Amm. Sulfate.. Mainly kelps and humic acids?? I had luck in the shady yards in establishing roots but didn't have good luck with former chemlawn yards which probably is to be expected so I'm gonna try those with the 20-0-1 because it does have some syn N to get stuff going in our cold spring.. still snow here

Jump starting grass in the cold Spring is a bad idea for sun lawns... for shady lawns it is almost a death nell... people say: "Oh my, it is impossible to grow grass in the shade!!!"
Well this is one reason why...
