    Ah.... none. Which begs the question.... WHY? Why not just use a granular?

    Their are several options available for liquid fertilizer depending on your needs. For small quantities, you can buy 5 gallon cases at lesco of various slow release liquid formulations. You can also buy in drums or by bulk, or by mini bulk skids of about 200 gallons. I have used both Coron (70% slow, available from Helana) and MBN 30 from Moyer in PA. The reasons to use liquid? You can apply fert/pre/post combinations all at once and can custom blend your mix. Plus, a liquid such as Coron offers better results than 75% of the granulars on the market You can also accomplish this with a ride on unit like a Z-Spray or a Perma-Green, but there are times where a tank mix works better (i.e. 2 foot wide strips of grass such as found in shopping centers and office parks and steep hills where it is difficult if not impossible to ride)

    I don't understand how a liquid could be slow release? How does it work?
