Liquid Fert source

Anyone use liquid fert already in a concentrated liqiud form? If so what brands do you like and cost.

I don't have a way to melt down granular BTW.

No. I'd have to order or make a long trip.

All you need is a screen in the top of your tank to melt down urea.
It melts quickly when water is poured on top.

I don't like to melt down urea so I went back to a product from Conklin it's a nice slow release fert. turf care has some but they won't put it in a 55 gal drum they only do mini bulks. I only use 55 gals a year the stuff I bought was like $8 a gal plus shipping

Urea is easy to melt. Just remember never to run the pump or try to agitate when melting urea--it will plug the pump or filter promptly. Better to stir with a canoe paddle or let it sit overnight to slowly dissolve.

Keep in mind if the solution is too concentrated or the air temp is too hot--it will draw the moisture out of the grass--you get a very brown fertilizer burn.

I really like Nutraflow liquid fert. Especially their 17-0-5 25% slow release. Great green up. Never any turf burn. And it seems to keep lawns nice & green for a long time. Sometimes, we'll get a full truckload (4000 gallon tanker), and sometimes we split a load woth a friendly competitor.

How much product do you use per acre and what it cost per acre in your experience.

I circulate my pump water as I add the urea and P and K into the water. No filter no problems. I use a sewage pump. Never burned a lawn yet.
