    How many people are using it? Is it worth it compared to dry? I was considering using it in app. #2 mixed in with weed spray. This would prevent going over lawn twice.
    What do I need to know about liquid? How is it mixed (depending or analysis I know). I only want a 1/2 pound n at most for this time of year.

    Any advice is welcome - pros and cons.

    You can. You will not have as long of a residual though. The good thing is that it is soluble, so you will get quicker activity. I also think that it will help plant uptake, if you are mixing with other herbicides. That is my opinion. As far as 1/2 lb. read the label and mix rate, calibrate your equipment. You might have to lower the rate of 2-4D or whatever you use to get your 1/2 lb. I am still learning the different techniques as well. Any other help people?????

    I use slow release liquid. It's a little pricey but I just dial it down and use it only for weed and feed apps. I may also use a little 46-0-0 to spike it a little this year.
