    I am going to have an irrigation system installed. My property is approx. 42,000sq ft. I am thinking of having an auto fertilizer installed when I have the irrigation system installed. What are the pro's and Con's. I currently have both liquid and granular put down through out the year. Will I achieve the same results with just liquid. Also can I put down pesticides with it. any info would be appreciated.

    My limited experience is with the Fertigator system. Its fairly flexible, allowing you to program how many pulses of fertilizer you want sprayed in each zone. My main issue is with it is that it only sprays the fertilizer for the first few seconds each zone is on, so rotor heads don't distribute it well at all.
