    This will be the 1st year for me to use it if I decide to go with this product. I am checking with various sources at this time. Where are you located? How much would you need, maybe we could go in together to make an order and get a discount. PM me if you do not want to reveal info here.

    One more question: What kind of grass is this fertilizer going on? I could see using something like this if you were planning on using ammonium sulfate prills for the N and not ever putting coated urea on a lawn. But this is too much P for centipede. I never put any on centipede unless the soil test comes back low. Even then, it is a once a year application as 1/4 lb P from solution grade 20-20-20.

    I was thinking of using on various warm season grasses. I normally don't use any P. I was looking for a good source of iron & micros. I didn't think that would be enough P to hurt but if you think it is I will take your advice.

    Which of these granular options did we decide is best? I'm not sure I'd know how to do the liquid, but I'd appreciate advice on what I should do for my centipede? Thanks so much for the help!

    I don't think you could go wrong with my Lebanon 17-0-17 if you can find it. Really don't think the liquid would be practical for the homeowner. Remember timing is important.

    Thanks so much! What's the best way to judge timing?
