Humic Organic liquid ?

I went to a pesticide recertification class and recieved a sample of this product. I am wanting to learn more about it and if anyone has had any dealing with it. I am in the process of buying a zmax sprayer and was wondering if it could be sprayed out of it to introduce some organic priducts to my lawns. Thanks as always for the help.

"Supplement" for the lawn. If you put it on your lawn expect fast weight loss and add inches to your lawn's bust size in weeks. Go put it down at home in a small area. See what happens. Do a "Riggle Test" and get a before and after pic. Eat some icecream and use the stick to mark the lawn like Rig. I bet he weighs 400# from all those icecream sticks he has in his lawn

I am no where near 400 pounds. Thanks for your concern. However, I had to skip breakfast this morning to make up for the excess calories I consumed last night. Retirees don't always get a lot of exercise.
These days I use white plastic spoons to mark my test plots. Write the product and date on the spoon with a marker.
Except some of the markers were stolen last night.

Thus far, crabgrass treatments with Drive look about the same. Label rate, 1 times, 2 times and three times over.
Good idea Twoman, Newly should do a test on his own lawn side by side, untreated, regular strength and triple strength. Get photos.
Spoons cost about a penny each.

The stuff will show an effect on soils that need it,,, but otherwise not much...

I would love to see a side by side comparison. My dealer was trying to get me to buy something very similar.

If you extract the oil from any snake it is basically the same thing.
