    I'm sure it goes without saying..lol.....4lbs per K is only a baseline. A truely knowlegable professional would apply per specific need and situation. EX. if you are feeding an under fed area, the 50% quick will win EVERY TIME..to a layman that is. If you are feeding a well fed area...the 50% quick will LOOSE EVERY TIME...when compared to 16-2-3...too much growth etc. I have my 5 acres down to a science...great color..very little growth. 16-2-3 and 7-2-12 are the products I use to achieve that, and only because I tried all the standard lesco type stuff first. Keep in mind I used standard syn fert for 18 or so years. Many companies are starting to sell similar products to Barry's because they offer a higher level of turf control....plain and simple. I often speak with golf supers around my area (luckily some of the top nationwide) and they are all using a wide range of products....none of which is a standard syn 50% scu or xcu. Most in fact are using products that are similar to what Barry sells. I'm not saying that as a commercial lawn company you should use this or that...only that if you are trying to fine tune a turf enviornment 30-0-5 50% xcu is just not something that would be used.

    just cuz larry forgot to post about he got more material to do a test, doesnt mean his results arent valid(even though he has not posted them!)

    we should not get into a tizzy over fert, just saying.

    i am glad i brought this threadup again. good discussions.

    Absolutely true. Screamin Green's label provides a range of 3.1 to 6.25 lbs/K.

    I am sure what you are saying is correct...but I have "fine tuned" all my lawns if you will with 30-0-5 (50% XCU).

    You are making a blanket statement and that is tough to do.

    Here is OH about all I need is a slow release N and I am good to go. Our P and K is great and we just need a slow release N for color and slowed growth.

    I think there are many ways to skin a cat and I am looking forward to trying Screamin Green...but I have gotten awesome results with 30-0-5 and it will continue to be my standard again for 2012. I do have 11 Ton of Barry's product to try for 2012 though.

    If Screamin Green proves itself then Barry will be sending me 5-6 truck loads for 2013!

    I would also like to know these things. Currently I have a 6 app program, what apps would be best to replace with these products. Would I still be able to get 6 apps in? Right now I am using a 22-0-5 50%xcu or in early fall a 23-3-11 50% xcu both have 3% iron.

    They wont say> You will find out it like all fert. Yards that have good soil conditions will green up with less fert and those that have lesser quality soil will take more fert to make them green and keep them that way.
