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.
Yeah. I used to do that too. One thing to note, use truly soluable 46-0-0, not the airport ice melter blend. The later contains small bits of aggregate used in the manufacturing process that will go through the pump and clog the gun, screwing up the application.
Conan, what is best in life? To crush the Democrats, to see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentation of the liberals.
