    Hi Folks. Need a little help. I'm quoting a commerical job for fertiliziation and their specs call for a liquid weed and feed 24-2-8. I can find granular weed and feed with 24-2-8, but cannot find liquid form. Anybody know where I can buy this?
    Thanks

    to do this you will need to get out your thinking pad, and maybe your fert rep. you are going to buy alot of product to mix, and if you add a slow release N, this app will cost more then a dry app.

    Exactly. Sprayable urea and potash are cheap enough, but any slow-release N and the 2% P are going to cost you. With the analysis specified, I would bet the prospect has no clue (and probably doesn't care if it's applied liquid or granular).

    They may be stirring this to a particular contractor. ie: Clemlawn etc.

    As said by others the liquid fert. with slow release is expensive.

    You will have to mix the fert. and Herbi. yourself (Does it call for Pre-M also)

    Get written clarification of specs. if you really want this one.
