    Is it ok to apply Merit 0.2% 0-0-7 and then apply lesco 28-0-3 20% polyplus 0.35%biosolids 0.7fe at the same time?

    I don't see why not we spray Merit and spread fert at the same time and you can buy fert with merit in it so nock your self out.

    I take it that your going to make 2 pass one for the fert and one for the Merit

    Spray is the thing I would think the OP would be interested in knowing. The cost of a bottle of Merit or its AI I am sure would be much more budget friendly for you and achieve the same results given proper application.

    Yes I plan to make two passes if it is safe. I do not have a sprayer at the moment and lesco was out of the fertilizer/merit with nitrogen.

    I spray a Armortech product it cost $83.50 a gal don't remember the rate but one gal will do just under 6 acres.

    Just say it did 5.5 acres thats $15.18 a acre Don't know what a bag of merit cost ? The reason I do it this way is I can keep the fert I like and don't have to go over a yard twice that's why I bough a ride on. Get it all done in 1 pass.

    It is definitely ok but are you sure you are within the recommended time in the life cycle of grubs for Merit? Check this site to see. I don't know if it covers as far south as Indy or not. Plug in your ZIP code and see.
