    look at 16-0-8 3% iron go to a lesco and ask questions
    @ 1 lb of nitrogen per 1000 sq ft take the first # (16) and divide it in 1/2 = 8000 sq ft a bag

    On our bahia lawns we use 18-0-36 it won't last very long but the bahia loves it. Bug-guy is also correct 16-0-8 3% iron works great too. I have found most bahia lawns are starving and any fert will work just water the hell out of it when you are done.
