So I am in Oregon, on the Eastern dry side (pine forest at higher elevations, sage and juniper at lower) and have been using an organic-based fert schedule for 6 years now. It took some time to get the hang of it, and the costs to the clients increased greatly, but my yards consistently look good throughout the season from a fertility standpoint. Here's my program: Starting the 1st week of April and every six weeks (5x per season)thereafter during the growing season I apply turfgro organic based 8-0-4 with mycchorhizae, made with feathermeal at twice the recommended rate . Works great! I want to consider including compost apps in the fall to replace the last round of fert, and am also curious about foliar feedings. After some reading I am playing with the idea of 3 of the turfgro apps instead of 5, compost app in fall, and foliar feedings throughtout the season. My concern is the equipment and time needed to do the foliar and compost apps. Is it economically doable? How does the total cost compare to just doing 5x per year of the turfgro product? How do the results compare? Any input is highly valued.
