Has anybody used this formulation yet? (It's an new technology improving on the former "SCU" formulations -- more efficient with more nutrients per pound).

rscvp, thanks :usflag:

Another option might be UFLEXX 46-0-0. It's coated with stabilizers that prevent leaching and volitalization. The prills are coated and I would think would be less likely than Urea to soak up moisture. I bought a couple of tons from Estes back in the Spring. Nice stuff...Clean. I used it in the tank but it appeared it would spread nicely. Can't say what the price is now but at the time it was only a couple more bucks a bag than Urea.

Uflexx is the Devil! I hate the stuff! (spreading) Soaks up moisture like none other! Makes a mess on everything! If it's humid out, you may have to clean the impeller after 1/2 bag:hammerhead: I spread my remaining 35 bags on my friends hayfield, just to get rid of it!

UFLEXX and UMAXX are awesome fertilizers. I used UMAXX this year in my tank mix and was extremely happy with it.
Larry, I am very interested in the XCU formulation, what is the cost and the longevity of the feeding?

Larry,

I have some questions for you about UAP. I noticed a few things you had said earlier in the season about their products and a few concerns. Will you be going with their product next season and did you did you have the results you anticipated? Thanks a lot and take care!

Hi "A-Team member" :usflag: (TURFCO) -- I just sent FD (another A-Team member :usflag:) a PM regarding this. Now I see you posted too. So I'll post what I know publically so everybody knows about it.

XCU is an improved version of SCU. EC Grow (Eau Claire, Wisconson) manufactures it for UAP. Figure a 25% SCU ..... the XCU would be equivelent to a 35% SCU. Less N loss + more slow release, less burn potential, and more N per granule. It's new, and that's why I posted. No smoke & mirrors whatsoever.

As far as our experience with UAP: Our first semi-load was a little dusty, but UAP quickly took care of that. No prob eversince. So far we have gone through 176 tons of UAP (dry) fert with no problem. We just finished 3 applications, and we have 2 more to go. We used to buy from Scotts until they raised hell when they started their own lawn application franchises. Then we bought from LESCO for many years -- great products, great people, etc, but this year, LESCO could not compete pricewise. So this year, every fertilizer order was from UAP. Heck--I played high school football against my local UAP rep. :laugh:

We're good on fert for a little while, but we'll need some soon. So I have been seriously shopping. I've looked at 32%, 34%, 46-0-0 sprayable, Tech Terra organics, and the new 43-0-0 XCU from UAP.

UAP told me today that I have 3 or 4 weeks to decide..if prices jump, he will notify me ahead of time. (that's the mark of a good sales rep)

I'll PM you with my rep's phone number. If I want smoke & mirrors, I'll vote for Osama. :laugh:

Got a price on UFLEXX today. Only a buck more a bag than standard Urea. I'll buy that for a dollar! No smoke and mirrors there. I've seen the results with my own 2 eyes.
