    Well Barry said you didn't use it so i though you were BS ing

    But i do remember you saying some thing like it works good at full rate at some time.

    No comment we know what that means.

    I forgot you did get a 10lb sample. Sorry for the misinformation.

    Everyone else, I'll be glad to discuss business matters.

    I don't think a 10 pound sample qualifies as true test!
    Just like your other highly validated opinions!
    I have nothing against you Larry but your information is often invalid!
    I'm with Rod, open minded if it works and justifies the cost. *trucewhiteflag*

    How the heck do you do a side by side comparison on 4 lawns with 10 pounds of product. At some point i will cease to be amazed. Unfortunately, it ain't today

    10# sample @ 4# per K = 2.5K

    2.5K divided by 4 lawns would be .62K per lawn

    I guess I would just ask why do it over 4 lawns with such a small amount of material.

    When I am checking a new product I compare 15K side by side and like to replicate it when I can.

    Not a good test or even a true test IMO!

    Never tried it :confused:
    Only tried one bag :confused:

    I think folks should know facts before posting. (IMO)

    Initially we applied ten pound sample bag. Then we traded fert with a local competitor for some of his screamin green. The only true side-by-side tests we did were 4 front lawns. We used the rest of the screamin green on entire lawns. Also keep in mind that ISU typically tests fert formulations on 10 foot by ten foot plots.

    Want to know who we traded with? Just send me a PM. Thanks. :usflag:

    Didn't say you did not try it,
    Didn't say you tried only one bag.
    Don't care who you "traded" with

    I posted based on the facts given....
    You claimed to do 4 side by side front lawns,
    Supplier of said product gave you 10lbs,

    4 lawns can't be done with 10lbs (front or entire)

    You chose to withold supposed "facts" about "trading" with another company.

    I based my comments on the facts that were given.....next time give the whole story, or can you not give the whole story in one sitting because the "facts" may need to be shuffled a bit in the next post???

    I keep in mind a whole lot of things when reading any and all posts on this forum, not just a state university 10x10 plot that somehow magically makes your side by side test legitimate.

    I have used trailer loads from Barry direct, not "traded" with a local competitor. We have pictures of our side by side comparisons......see thread link below


    Good luck all.
