    For those of you that give 6 or 7 apps what do you put down at each one. I currently only give 4 sometimes 5 which consists of pre-em, weed control, grub control, and 2 deep root ferts in the fall. I was always told this is the best way to do it and its worked pretty well so far.

    1 - fert .5lb/1000

    2 - fert 0-.5lb/1000 + pre-m + broadleaf

    3 - fert .5lb/1000 w/high K + iron + merit & talstar mix + post emerg grassy weed

    4 - fert 1lb/1000

    5 - fert 1lb/1000

    6 - fert 1lb/1000, or a lime

    apps 4-6 get any herbicide/insecticide needed, usually spot. I try to go light on the N during spring and summer, and blast it with a heavy pound late august on. All my control products are liquid. I use this as my model, it may change for certain customers.
