  1. Fertilizer Application
    I am curious to what some of you have had success with or disaster when mixing and applying an extended release soluble nitrogen via a skid sprayer. I’ve read plenty on what some say 2gal/thousand is the minimum when applying 1lb N/thousand. What I want to know is if anyone has applied, let’s...
  2. Pesticide & Herbicide Application
    I bought the Eliminator 1 Gallon Multipurpose Sprayer for small problem areas. I did a calibration test for the mist and got 1/4(.25) of a gallon for 1000 sq ft. And it took 3 minutes. Is that normally possible?
  3. Pesticide & Herbicide Application
    Hello, I calibrated my 4 gallon 20 volt powered Chapin backpack and came up with 1.875 gallons per 1000 square feet. I did a 50 square feet area in about 19 seconds. Am I walking too fast/slow? Or does this sound about right. How?: I tested in a 50 square feet area and got 12 oz. I then...

Over 1000 fertilization accounts and they really knew what they were doing. I was on a mowing crew, and I only did fertilization with them a couple of times, so I know to...

  6. Pesticide & Herbicide Application
    Did a calibration test the other day and the amounts were way to high, way over the variances listed for all nozzles. Appears there is to much pressure, could the unloaded valve be the culprit because as far as I can tell that is the only way an adjustment could be made to the pressure. The...
  7. Pesticide & Herbicide Application
    Trying to find a conversion chart or website that gives different settings for different spreaders. IE, I have a Lesco spreader, and I have it set on 14, whats that same setting for spreader X. I am trying to match up a lesco and a Vulcan..... If this makes sense and anyone can help, I thank...
  8. Pesticide & Herbicide Application
    Does fertilizer spread faster and flow quicker if the humidity is low? The flow of my Barricade product was great today. While spreading with my Permagreen Ultra, I think I had to reduce the control dial to a lower setting, just due to dry weather. I found I must apply 50 pounds in just over 3...
