dave.
my settings work out to 13-14 with the calibration gauge
this will just get you ballpark
you may need to check from there
i tend to walk faster pushing the gran fungicides

what are you after?

Like the above poster mentioned, the settings will get you in the ballpark. You need to calibrate your spreader for what you are spreading.

Here is a link that will get you started. Generally, once I have used the catch pans once for a specific product, I do not use them again for that product, as the pattern dosen't really change, but I like to calibrate once a month on the setting just to make sure that I am putting down the correct amount.

Dave,
I am not too confident about the dry fungicides for disease control. I think you need a liquid that would coat the leaves with a protectant film of fungicide. Propoconizole should be fairly good for this purpose, as a liquid. For red thread, a strobin-type fungicide would be a little better, Heritage, Compass and others. (Strobins don't work on dollarspot.)

For red thread--extra nitrogen is probably just as effective.

Dave, send me your email in a private message and I'll email you a spreader settings conversion chart that you can keep handy for when these situations arise. Oftentimes, you won't find Lesco spreader settings on Anderson's bags. Probably they want you to buy an Anderson's spreader? lol.

As far as the disadvantages of granular fungicides go, there is truth to that, but the good thing about Prophesy is the DG Pro granule. When water hits it, it breaks into thousands of tiny granules that stick to the leaf just fine (assuming you are applying it to damp turf rather than applying to dry turf and watering in). Of course, the DG Pro advantage is a bigger deal for getting smaller particles into soil more efficiently, so again, proper watering is important. Check out Andersons site for more info.
