    Im in Kc to. Where in kc are you im from overland park. Are you wanting to go all granular? or are you wanting to do liquid applications as well? Personally I do not like granular post emergent weed control. Do you know which chemical supplier your gonna use yet. Your gonna have quite a bit of learning to do still. Does you boss understand this? I kinda got thrown into chemicals and had to learn by trial and error didn't have anybody to teach me. sounds like your in the same boat.

    here is a 6 step program that works well in the kc area
    1. 19-0-6 25% slow release with .38% barricade
    2. 22-0-11 50% slow release with 7% fe
    3. 32-0-8 30% slow release with 2% fe
    4 35-0-5 all mineral
    with 2 liquid weed control apps 1 in spring one in fall
