Ntexx 15-5-5 Bio-soil enhancer

I have been using this for a couple years on a couple test sites and can't decide whether to continue. Has any body used this product over a long time? The claim is the results will take time. I was using it on ou r worst grass ......think I see some improvement.

This is an attempt to enrich the soil by getting OM and water filtration below the living thatch layer,,, which in turn, encourages root growth downward...
These products are useless when there is no more organic debris for the microbes to feed on...

The only real way to know is to treat a strip of grass--and compare it side by side with an untreated control strip--under your local soil, climate and grass species.

Unless someone at a university has done the work for you.
