    Any recommendations for a true slow release that isn't dusty and has a sustained green color don't know what company can trust anymore for quality

    I have also said I was going to send a sample of fert to a lab and see what it comes back as. I never do this year I had a truck load blended.

    I get 8 weeks using UFLEXX & at least 12 weeks using UFLEXX. I add ammonium sulfate since my soils have a high ph.

    I kinda like XCU from Agrium. Clean, spreads nice, and several choices as to how long you want it to last. Not sure how often you do apps?? Agrium has never let me down, and they also sell what FdLawnMan uses.

    We us UMAXX as our summer slow release, in our liquid trucks we use X10 as an additive.

    Both work extremely well

    Lebanon's fertilizers with MESA do a great job of helping you maintain color, but dust can be a factor. Seems like the slight extra effort of occasionally cleaning off your impeller (especially in the summer months) would be a small price to pay for nice turf.

    What have you been using that led to the dust complaints? Where in NY are you?
