    Has anyone ever used this product or something similar? I've used it on a couple houses. Should be a good summer App. as well.

    Is it "natural organic" or synthetic organic?

    Keep in mind that "natural organics":
    Reqiure more product per 1000 square feet.
    Smell bad.
    Contain contaminents often harmful to humans & wildlife.

    Pertsonally, I prefer products that are designed to be used around mammals (humans, pets, and wildlife).

    My oppinion only.

    That's alot of Phosphorous. Sounds more like a starter fert to me. Not sure why you'd need that much P in a summer fert.

    Lebanon used to market this analysis under their "Greenskeeper" line. Years ago 50% of the N was derived from Urea Formaldehyde. A quick look at today's version indicates there is 2.3% Slow N from Methylene Urea.

    I've seen a 10-6-4 somewhere recently that was 50% bio-solids too but can't remember who made it.

    A bag of 20-10-10 would cover twice the area at much lower cost. Why pay good money for filler?
     
  9. Actually the label states 3% is water insolube nitrogen and 2.3% is other water soluble nitrogen...being slowly available nitrogen from methylene urea

    Like Timturf said it is 3 % WIN. I think this would be a good gentle Fert for the Dog days of summer and also a good way to introduce bio solids to the soil. Also a 1/2 a pound or less of N is where i want to be in the summer . I'll probably stick w/ what i've been doing, which is 20-10-10 50% slow, Probably my favorite blend.
