    Thanks quiet, I have noticed various response times, based on rain events mostly. In theory it degrades at a similar pace with the growing season as a result of soil temps. So I am guessing that even though it shows up in 2 weeks it is not all gone in 2 weeks. It should continue to release N as it continues to degrade.

    In Texas, yours is probably used up more quickly than here. I wouldn't be surprised if there was residue in the soil next April, from what I applied last week.
     

  2. Maybe you should consider charging a little more for your services, that way you could buy some better beer, and maybe the beer frats will change!

    Okay you dipsticks, here it is -- raised on a farm in NW Iowa. A.A. degree at Iowa Central Community College (Ft Dodge, IA). B.A. at IOWA (college of business). By that time, I realized sitting in an office & balancing books was NOT for me. My hair was down past my shoulders, and I had a full beard. I became more interested in ecology, etc. Even subscribed to 'Mother Earth News' magazine. So I decided to attend Iowa Lakes Community College. Spent 2 1/2 years there, and got a A.S. in hort. Same weekend I graduated, I moved my family down to Dallas, TX and started working for ChemLawn Corp. This goes on & on, so I won't bore you to death with any more.

    Hope you all now know why I'm a HAWKEYE fan who lives in the HAWKEYE state. :usflag:

    p.s. Mickey Mantel was actually one of my customrs in Dallas.
