    Opinions on this product - Have any of you guys used it and if so are the results good.

    It appears that it would be a good product to use on my ornamental spraying as it offered a good balanced approach to N and K - and what I like about it most is that it addresses the micros that my soils tend to be missing.

    I was thinking foliar feeding would offer faster results....and could be done will I was applying my pesticide/fungicides.

    Anyone that has experience with this product I would like to hear your thoughts as well if you have any products you feel offer other advantages.

    i would be careful with mix rates spraying nitrate nitrogen on plants. Not crazy about doing that. This past year i have used a product (name escapes me) but it is 10 percent iron and 3 percent amm. sulfate. Worked well but boy did it extend the caterpillars eating time!

    I believe your concern is related to the % of concentration of the Nitrate Nitrogen in the final spray mix. I am sure the Label doesn't call for Eagle 6 to be applied full strength.

    I am not familiar with this product but reading the Numbers, I feel it would give a quick boost to ornamental. I don't believe it would take the place of Granular Fertilizer. However I think it might be a very nice supplement to it.

    Where are you buying Eagle 6?? I wouldn't mind trying it. BTW I did Google it and read a little about it.

    I have the Howard Rep looking for it up here. I am thinking of mixing it with a granular similar to the lesco palm fert for the bed a 10-2-10... but the granular would be used essentially only twice a year and the foliar sprays would be used to keep everything perked up and address the micros that the granular do not. I am not positive but my hopes is that by doing so I will keep some of the showy plants on the properties will keep perked up and doing there thing.

    I forgot to ask or look to see if Eagle 6 is nonstaining???? I am assuming it is.

    My Program is a 6 Lawn and 6 Shrub treatments a year. I have been using an acid forming slow release granular Palm fert on all shrubs twice a year and mixing my own liquid supplement that is applied 6 times a year or every 60 days. I happy with the response but I would like to find a good pre-packaged product instead of mixing my own. Big difference is I mix a 100 gallon at a time and power spray shrubs with a ton of liquid. Being old school I believe in lots of carrier when fertilizing or Insecticide etc. Of course most Herbicide work best at a gallon a thousand and I use a different skid sprayer for Herbicides and or Back Packs.

    It does not state that it will stain...however it does have the 1% Iron so I would assume that it would...however the difference in your methods of application would not prevent me from using it as much as I am limited to a backpack sprayer.

    Here is the link Ric

    I ended up calling the Manufacture. It does stain and that is a Deal Killer for me. No matter how careful you are there is always that change of staining a Customers Property. Sure I use Staining Chemicals on Turf, But I am super careful not to over spray any thing. But with Ornamentals right against the house I am not using a staining product. Rust Erase from Lesco is a great cleaner if you do over spray.

    If you are looking for a non staining supplement I will E mail my mix to Bryan (Promo) and have him give it to you. I will not post it. The only problem I see is My mix is done in a 100 gallon Skid Sprayer. Down sizing it to a back pack might be a problem.
