    Ive been wanting to experiment as well. I do the Lesco pre em apps but this time of year alot of my lawns seem like they need something else. I have a permagreen but of course it wont spray iron. Need to get me a tank sprayer I guess.

    Sprint 138 chellated or quick green liquid.


    If there is good irragation when temps around 85+ ill use up to 1lb N per K and 4 oz iron with some potash muraite water that in heavy the same day the darkest green around makes ture green look like there using water only! LOL :weightlifter: Never burned a lawn in my life. I watch guys spray and I see why they burn lawns they soak the shiz out of the grass and overlap like 5 times

    Not enough nitrogen to satisfy me. Although I used to use more in cool weather than hot weather. I don't like fert burn. I often switched to dry fert in hot weather so I could apply almost a pound of slow release mixture even in hot weather.

    WIN nitrogen or high slow relese formula. Get some ironite in the bag form from costco or hdepot put it down heavy it will do wonders.
