Its an old Chem lawn trick that is still used today. I used to do it years ago when we ran short on liquid fert. We used between 50 and 75 pounds 46-0-0 in a 300 gallon tank and it worked quite rapidly. Yes you could burn the turf in hot weather but since this was usually done in the spring it was not a problem...The fungus that followed, well thats a different story.

When i saw 46-0-0, the first thing i thought of was Tru-Brown Chem Lawn!

I will add that I never worked for Tru-Green but I did know an ex-applicator and I was down on material at the end of a round and couldn't get a delivery in time...
