So RC your going to carry and spread twice as much fert than you had to with 30-0-5 you use.

So how was the price comparison for a lbs of N.

I have priced it and screaming green was more but the price of shipping ads a lot. Where a reg supplier don't charge for shipping i would guess it's already in the price.

Didnt Larry use it.

Have used it in the past but shipping is an issue. Marks the price up about 1.50-2.00 per bag, ouch. Great product, wish they had a midwest supplier that you could pick it up at.

Screamin Green is applied at 4lbs/K. You use less N & still get great results. Virginia Tech's 3 year study showed same turf quality with 1/3 N as 28-5-12.

Larry did not use it.

cool RC, that will be intersting

hey, am i wrong in that tremor, the member that resonded on the last 2009 page died?

anyways, roberts turf had great results, but his point is very valid.

lets revisit the price shall we phasthound, and if you need to pm me that is cool too.

we would be able to purchase and store about 16 pallets at a time max. that would have to be delivered and forklifted on gravel to our storage containers.

Tremor, (steve) did pass away this summer, he is missed, both on here and locally, I still have him programmed on my cell, can't bring myself to remove him, he was a great resource and taught me a lot.

now that ain't nice.

we did side-by-side comparisons on 4 properties (Barry sent it to us)

screamin green at 4 lbs per K vs 30-0-5 50% XCU (Agrium) at 3 lbs per K

4 front lawns (2 clay, 2 loam)

no word games here, and I choose not to comment regarding the results
