    I have found a sprayable source of potassium sulfate at a decent price. I was wondering why you prefer potassium nitrate. I know nitrate is a saltier product but has slightly less chlorine.

    Potassium nitrate is the most soluble out of the two. It is not hard to get 1 lb of potassium nitrate to mix into 5 gallons of solution.

    Is there anyway you could point me to the thread where you discuss the different soils and how your program changes with them?

    The kinds of grass I deal with do not do well with urea, coated urea or any potassium chloride. I also have to either raise or lower pH, as well as add available micronutrients. My state might as well be a foreign country for all intents and purposes. A bag of anything or a gallon of anything costs 20% more than it does on the continent.
