    Whatever happened with this, BarefootJames? Did you get some and try it out?

    Here are a few shots of some bison compost. We were told it is well composted, and I think finding the sprout in there confirms that. I also figured it was well done when I opened the hatch on the Escape and smelled nothing, and that the wife wasn't exiting the vehicle gasping for air. She got me a sample, from a vendor at a farmers market. I placed some on a few plants to see how they respond, before deciding where to use the rest.. I'd like to see if the man will allow me a few pickup loads of some hotter stuff to build my pile with.

    And so, to the buffalo man...:drinkup: Thank's for the manure.

    I never tried it. WAITING on the Lawn Solutions compost spreader then I will try all beasts and their compost. David is working on it. Until then ................ I'm spreading humates and proteins (meals) - with CT (of course).
    Brown patch is the big thing here in KY right now thank goodness for NPP works as advertised! Word to the wise if you have forcasts of lots of rain for extended periods and hot nights - 75 +++ temps spray NPP. I for sure will add this step to my system in 2010.

    2 ounces per 1000 with a minimum 1 gallon of water per 1000, you want a nice foliar spray for good leaf coverage. At that rate it costs around $1.15 per 1000

    It stops it in its tracks same with dollar spot, red thread, take all patch. It is very safe to use and is made from crab and shrimp shells

    What Bill said - i might be getting up to 1500 sq ft at that rate - and it is working. Nice too as I have several client with roses and I spray those too - keeps black spot in check.

    Does NPP kill off existing brown patch or is it a preventative?
