    Sprayboy you are an antagonist and most people can do without your input here. I can anyway. Dry product was SOLD to PAYING CUSTOMERS. Most of your questions were already clearly answered.

    I did messup on the rate of UAN. I pictured myself mixing up with a gallon milk jug but I was looking at my notes on this today and I was using a 2.5 gallon herbicide container. So that might make this seem a bit more realistic. 3x 2.5 gallons is 7.5 gallons of UAN. I made a note of my lawn being 36K after the driveway and house/garage are removed from 40K lot size. Also the dealer told me to try 10 gallons/acre originally. That might have been OK if I had used more water, but when I first sprayed it I was putting 5 gal of UAn/30 of water and that was a bit burn happy.

    So I used rough math of 3lbs N/gallon of UAN in my notes. Actual math shows 3.3 lbs N/gal. I used 7.5 gallons of UAN on my 36K or 24.75 lbs of N. Sounds a bit more realistic, I know. So forgive my mistakes. I typed a response here using memory and I visualized myself with a milk jug. It was an old herbicide jug.

    So green all year for $8 yes, and if you don't like that you know where you can kiss it. I made an honest mistake here. Anyone want to ask something or try to add to the conversation let's hear it.

    Antagonist? If that is your opinion then that is fine. As I recall I first responded to the OP with Q&A about the product.

    I have been spraying liquid fert for over 20 years so when someone says one app of UAN keeps a lawn green all year catches my eye. I wanted to learn more how I could save money and do a better job but all I keep getting is a changing story on every response. I am always looking at new ideas and products that might help turf health.
