    hi,
    can any of you guys recommend a good liquid or granular iron?
    what are the pro's and con's of liquid verses granular iron? which one in your opinion is better?

    thanks in advance.

    Liquid=fast green up

    Granular=longer lasting

    For liquid I use Ferromec AC. Do not use much granular. I prefer the liquid.

    Look for a fully chelated liquid iron product for fast green up and lasting ability. Check with Wilbur Ellis Co. on the mainland. 800-275-6920 ask for Wayne or Randy. Neal

    Make sure that any granular Iron is from Iron Sulfate rather than the cheaper & less available Oxide form.

    Is this a good time to apply either liquid or granular? I'm over on Long Island, NY.

    All Iron works more dramatically with high humidty so last week was better bling. But Iron will work well for you now too.
