Not to mention that if I was missing areas (small, but still...), I was probably over applying in other areas.
Glad to know I'm not the only one that feels this way. I was almost embarrased to start this thread.

Can you give me a good online source for this?

You should be able to get some from your fert/chem supplier also.

Mine has some called Runway, it does ok, but not as good as the other stuff I use. Plus the other is free.

At the price and time spend you are better off with a Commercially made Foam Marking Product. However making your own isn't all that hard. Glycerin and Corn Syrup are the secret ingredients that most people leave out. Glycerin creates bubbles and Corn Syrup makes them last longer. A typical formula would be a 6 water, to 1 Corn Syrup, to 1/2 Glycerin, to 2 Dish Soap. BTW it works great for kids bubble blowing also.

ag foam concentrate

Agri supply has it 30 to 40 bucks a gallon. But that will last a long time.
