    I know this has been discussed before, but would like some fresh input on this. I've always used 10-18-20 for my final App. but was thimking about trying 46-0-0 UREA on some of my less favorable lawns. What do you think?

    I use 46-0-0 1/2 lb per m, it works great. Lawns green up nicely in the spring.

    i have read and heard mixed reviews. some say get as much water soluble nitrogen down as possible, others say get high potassium fert down to develop a hardier grass blade. i prefer high potassium ferts, but like hearing what others have experienced, especially the vets on here.

    I would do both. Mix them together if this is feasible for you. (Mixing takes less time than doing 2 apps) I think you should put down a pound of N, and no more than a pound of K. I usually do a pound of N and 1/2 pound of K, but you are farther north than me, so I would use more K up there.

    Is there any slow release with the 10-18-20? and what is the source of K? MOP or SOP?

    No slow release, K sourse is sop.I think, don't have a copy of the label here.I was going to do a pound of k on the previous app. and 1 pound of N on the last App.

    Try some triple 40, man does it work great. The only problem it only comes in 100 lb bags.
