At my branch we carry the following in liquid form.

12-0-0 Chelated Iron
12-0-0 Iron Plus

In granular form you can buy the following.

Granular Iron 20FE (20% Iron)
Ferrous Sulfate
5-10-31 Fertilizer with 10% Iron
24-5-11 Fertilizer with 5% Iron
28-0-12 Fertilizer with 3% Iron
21-0-21 Fertilizer with 2% Iron

Hissing Cobra, would you happen to know the price on the Chleated Iron at your location considering you sound like you work at JDL?

Also a side question, I'd love to hear from Green Doc on a Chleated Iron question. I've always heard 7 to 10 oz per k for a dark green on the Chleated, is this high volume or low volume? Is the 7-10 ounces mixed with a gallon or five or more?

Which one and what is the manufacturer's label rate? Too much iron will turn grass black, then straw brown. I stick to label rates on the chelates. I can get in real trouble with ferrous sulfate if the solution is too concentrated. 2 oz per 1000 if it is a true foliar applied at 1 gallon per 1000. If I am applying a soil drench with the intention of altering soil chemistry, it goes up to 1 lb per 1000 in 10 gallons.

Ryan, do you have any pics. or could you shed some light on the color your getting from it? Five gallons per k seems like high volume. It seemed like I read somewhere a smaller dose of iron, but with less water volume would be just as effective. It seems like from my understanding you would get the same results at 2-3 oz. / 2.5 gallons. Right or wrong?

Idk how to post pictures from my phone or I would show you the recommendations. It says apply 6 to 9oz per k in sufficient water through coverage usually 3 to 5 gallons per thousand square feet.

Ryan, are ya'l seeing good results with the color in the way ya'll are using it? I've been noticing all the neighborhood offices have the deepest green around here. I came to conclusion this is their secret is the liquid apps of iron. I'd like to find a good number scheme that works best. I would love to hear about the results in the color change ya'll are receiving at these rates.

Very happy with the results. I would be lying if I said all the lawns I spray looked the best around but the ones that are properly watered and cut look awesome. Deep green and color last between apps.
