    Last year I used liquid fert and granular fert. The liquid scared me a little because we had some very dry weather in the spring and some of my lawns burned. I was using 28-0-0. So I switched to granular and had great luck. I think I'll do liquid on my 2nd applications and granular on 3rd and 4th applications. Liquid is more price effective than granular. What are you putting down?

    THe only benefit to me with liquid fert is the ability to apply more than one product at once. Fert,weed,insect & pre. Now machines like the PG and other ride on's can eliminate the need for applying like this, unless you do some liquid fungicides.

    I would recommend you do whats best for your company, fiscally and suits your agronomics
