    When doing liquid lawn apps, what do y'all use for iron? I have always used ferrous sulfate powder from Lesco. It is cheep cheep and works well. I hate the dust and mess though. What do you use?

    How much is 2 1/2 gallon jug? And what rate are you using it at? Is this just iron? Or does it have N-P-K as well? Thanks

    I use ferromec ac as well. I paid about $30.00 for 2 1/2 gallon jug. About 8 ounces per 1000 ft.

    So you just run that straight with water? No added urea or surfactcants? Sorry for the 20 questions...

    I have been using Long Green and Lawn Plex from Rootz this spring, bu thten I changed to Ferromec, but they only suggested a 3 to 4 oucne rate. You are using 8 oz per K of Ferromec?

    forgot to mention, the directions for rate depends on the type of grass you are applying it to.

    Depends ont he situation.

    If there is a strong wind I might use a 4 iron but normally I just use the trusty 7.
