    Anyone know of a conversion chart or something similar to convert settings in alpha to numeric? I have a product that states to use setting J on the label and my spreader has numbers not letters. I'm using the 80 lb. broadcast spreader. Thanks for any help.

    If your fert is non lesco DO NOT USE RECOMENDED LESCO SETTING. They are never right. Use the Info supplied for lbs/setting and calculate for your formulation.

    pounds per thousand

    #=pound
    m=thousand square feet

    Thanks for everyones information. I talked to my Lesco Rep. this morning and got everything squared away. Usually after a trial run, the settings on the lesco fert bags are pretty close. I used the advice I was given and fine tuned it to get the 3 lbs./M I was looking for. (As 1grnlwn stated)
