    We are taking in consideration the new slow release xrt fertilizer. What do you guys think of it? Is it worth the extra money?

    I have not heard of it. Who makes it and distributes it?

    Shaw's makes it. It 's a polymer encapsulated urea for controlled release.

    They say it should last for 12 weeks, I'm just curious if anyone has used it and if they had good results

    I have used it. Seems to work as advertised.

    I'm getting the XRT with my round one, perhaps more than that. Yes, It's Shaws brand. I have no experience with the XRT, glad to hear of someone that's used it. I don't believe the XRT costs much more than standard PSCU. Since I'm a mowing guy first I'm all about stretching out the apps and cutting down any surge growth.
