    Thats an odd duck. Why are you using? Why wouldn't you use a more ballanced fert?

    I was going to but my Lesco rep. talked me out of it he said in our area he didnt think it was worth the extra cost. So my second app is going to be 32-3-8 w 2%fe with 30% slow release. That works out to 1 # of N per thousand. Thats alot of N for a second app. but he said we need that much to push out the dollar spot and red thread that seems to run rampant in our area. Harvestman

    How are you guys applying two apps of pre-emergence? Full rate (1 lb. N per 1K)? My county extention agent is specifically warning everyone here not to push N onto our lawns in spring because of the risk of Dollar Patch/summer diseases. He recommnds no more than 1 lb. N per 1K in spring. Tells us to push the N in fall. If I half the rate of a pre-emergence weed & feed in spring for two apps, I'll only get half the pre-emergence on each app. What would you suggest? Thanks!
