Overseeding & Milorganite

Hi Guys,

Its been a long time since I've posted. Fall is here and I'm getting back into the lawn care business. My question. This year I've got a customer would like me to use Milorganite instead of my usual Lesco program. Its not a problem since they are willing to pay the premium. When I areate and overseed I usually use a starter fertilizer. 18-24-12. Do I need to use a starter fertilizer or will an application of Milorganite at 40lbs per 3000ft be enough.

Thanks

SystemXpert

40lbs/3000 sq ft, from milorganite, not enough p and no k!
use milorganite plus a starter that has a low salt index, low chlorine, and uses sop!

ok, use 4-6-4 at 15 to 20 lbs/1000, but still lacking in n

how about 10lbs/1000 of 4-6-4 and 10lbs/1000 of espoma 18-8-6, thats enough fert for this fall and carry some over for next year!
