    Has anyone used this product. Lesco and Advance have raised prices for Fertilizer with grub control and we are trying to not to raise our prices, so we are looking at other products. Any suggestions?

    Vigoro is cheap.... it isn't homogenized, and the prill size is very inconsistant. The P and K tend to settle to the bottom of the spreader as it is applied. I don't have much confidence in their urea coated N as a slow release, either.... it's cheap for a reason. Try Lebanon or Anderson's.

    That is easy for me to say, as I am a low volume user.... fert prices don't hurt LCO's the way it does fert and squirt guys. I am sticking with the Lebanon Mesa with iron.... it's all about results for me.
