    GENERAL INFORMATION
    Ele-Max® TURF NECTAR™ AC is specially formulated for improved compatibility with
    amine herbicides. It is recommended for use as an additive in dry or liquid fertilizers
    and is compatible with most of the pesticides that can be utilized in combination with
    liquid fertilizers. This product is intended to be a supplement to a regular fertilizer
    program. Ele-Max® TURF NECTAR™ AC may not be compatible with some liquid
    fertilizer formulations. A pre-mix “jar test’’ is recommended prior to mixing with liquid
    fertilizer to check compatibility.

    contain ortho-phosphates. DO NOT MIX WITH CATIONIC PESTICIDES.

    season. Use this product in conjunction with an additional fertilization program to
    provide at least 1 lb. of nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. each growing season. Consult your

    your area.

    I used to rep for Helena at one point, so I'll just say that the Turf Nectar is almost identical to Ferromec from PBI or Lesco 12-0-0 chelated iron and you'll find plenty of satisfied users of either of those products.

    If the price works for you, then go for it.

    I would use the product just because it is liquid--flowable!
    The problem for me getting this stuff locally at our Helena facilities is that it isn't agriculture products. So, for me to get it, I would have to purchase a pallet of this stuff to make their order minimum and carry a lawn label--which it does. I don't need a whole darn pallet of anything from then yet.

    ferromec was pretty good, but could burn easily , and makes it grow pretty good.

    I use a similar product from agrium, called feature 15-0-0. Very affordable, nearly immediate results. I use it on ballfields overseeded with ryegrass in the spring and bermuda football fields in the fall.

    please give the results, and thanks for sharing. i know that when i used feature it did not last very long, and now i use a liquid CRN from helena now and it is much better, but also not cheap at all.
