    I don't know about the sprayable stuff. But I used granular uflexx for two years and stopped using it because the results were very poor in my opinion. It flushed out just like it wasn't supposed to. Now that I use ppscu I don't get that any more. I guess it depends on what you are looking for.

    Not suggesting that Uflexx is a replacement for SCU.

    But when you need to spray a certain round of apps, it certainly would be nice to extend the release pattern of Urea by adding the Hydrexx to your mix. I think a product like this definitely would have its place.

    Has anyone tried the Hydrexx? What is the cost?

    Teeca, I am curious to know of the alternative, please share.

    Happy Holidays

    On my Florida Sand, I gave up on any kind of spray-able slow release. Spray-able Slow release flushes out and in fact becomes a problem for ground water. I use Slow Release Granules and supplement them with a lower dose of spray that can be quickly up-taken before leaching out.

    I want to think that in clay soils spray-able slow release material would work well. What works for me might not work for the next guys, so there are no bad products, just ones that are better Me.

    i sat throught the speech from the agro guy and have not had the time to read all what he gave me but what i heard is that u cant cut it with urea to much or it will not work as well.
    i havent gotten any prices yet to compair to what i am doing now so i cant say how it works yet.

    In the past I've melted down straight Uflexx in my tank mix and sprayed it out. What is the difference between that and this new product?

    Essentially nothing.

    In this case you are making your own Uflexx simply by mixing straight Urea and the Hydrexx material in your tank.

    One would think the overall cost would be lower doing this, but that remains to be seen.

    Thanks for the info. Turf. I was wondering the same thing, as I started spraying UFLEXX 46-0-0 this fall.
