    I used Uflexx last season as my N source for the liquid portion of my program with good results. Used UMaxx in the past but the cost (like every other fert.) has gotten out of control so I opted for Uflexx and have seen very similar results. It is 100% soluble and "melts" into the tank through the strainer readily. Some batches I've received have a few pieces of grit and trash that you can prevent from getting in your tank (and ultimately through your spray nozzles) by simply placing panty-hose over the strainer as you add water over the top. You might look a little strange buying "Big Girl" panty-hose at the local Walgreen's but it saves a ton of time cleaning out strainers and wear/tear on pump diaphragms.

    were you successful enough with uflexx last year that you will use it again??
    Did you use liquid iron or soluable?

    At what rate do you use?/ we currently put down 3.8 pnds of N per year...
    We do this in four apps.. I am in the fertilie soils of eastern nebraska.. Been in the game for ten years but trying to get away from liquid fert due to cost..

    My N rates vary according to season and weather patterns from .5 to 1.0 lb/1000. I've seen some people try to use as little as .25 lb/1000 but I have serious doubts as to it efficacy. I use chelated liquid iron sources such as "Six Iron" with good results. Color longevity appears to be good but I think that is due to the Uflexx.

    My liquid program is based on 1/2 lb. Uflexx and 1/4 lb. urea with good results. Sometimes we use 3/4 lb. Uflexx. This is on small properties and islands, etc. where we can't get the ride-ons. I am hoping to try some UMaxx on some hard to spray properties this year to see if we can reduce the number of apps. I'll keep you informed.
