i will get some pics up very soon, but thought i would update anyways.

the shop lawn so far is greener on the side i treated with the One App already after one rain(and a full 7 days later application date and two rains and a snow) than the side i treated with our 15-0-5 40%mesa standard program fert.

i am curious to see the cylces of green in comparison hence this thread. intersting to see if at any point my standard fert program will outgreen the One App, or will it be the other way around over the months ahead!?

i will get som pics this weekend

So...more green on the One-step side. Does that mean it is releasing nitrogen too soon?
Let us know if the growth is strong--or excessive.

I just did the math and in some parts of the country where they get 400 dollars an acre from what other posters have claimed.....you could do 1 app program with one app on an acre instead of six applications and charge 2400 an app and spend the rest of the year in Grand cayman sipping those cool drinks with the little umbrellas.

Pass the suntan lotion.

Yeeehaw!

now that would ber gravy business there!!!

i also think it is the 2% AMONIUM SULFATE kicking in as the normal fert does not use that, and it is much quicker to activate. it is just a neat observation . my home lawn is su-per green and ready to cut, butr then again my lawn is always super green first in the spring as to the great soil and newer improved grasses compared to the surouinding area(old neighborhood)

yeah, i know. i will get pics then, by then, it should all be green, as after you mowit , it goes nuts!!!! this is only my second day mowing, we are about a week behind due to all the snow in march this year. some lawns are barely coming out of dormancy, others are nitro green. this is just a neat comparison, as remember the regular program side has had fert watered in very weel about 10 days prior to the one app side.

oh, and thanks about the mulch, it is a nicer product this year and we are getting compliments from customers too

How else do you know if it works other than trying it?

With your experience in the industry I'm sure we will get accurate results and feedback.

I wonder about the uncontrollable variables and how it responds.

Drought conditions and excessive heat or the opposite.

What is the sgn and how did it spread?
Sprayboy,

I see your in Indiana. The product is packaged in Portage, IN. Would you like a couple of bags to evaluate? Tim Kehoe
