    I was caught in the rain with out a tarp on my trailer this week. seven bags had water that seeped threw the top, about two inches of fert soaked.
    25-10-10 5% iron 40%scu. some bags had 1/4 of the bag soaked threw. any suggestions? If I just let them dry out and break up what ever sticks together is it going to affect the results I'll get?

    Nitroman, with slow-release I don't think that you'll see a difference in the results. Just put a little a time in your spreader so that it doesn't plug up and if it does it will be easier to clean. Your spreader screen will help break up the chunks when walking.

    sit it aside for a week or two and it will dry out.
