Default Liquid fertilizers

While I was at Tractor Supply today picking up glyphosate for my summer spraying I picked up some liquid fertilizer too;

https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...ents-2-1-2-gal

My plan is to dose it up with a little 2, 4-D and spray it on some of the, very small, fields that I've mowed over the past week. Typically if I was spreading granular, I would wait till we were forcast rain to spread but I'm not sure about this stuff.

Anyone with experience with this?

It says you can mix it amine base herbicides.....

20-0-0 would be nitrogen only. Says it treats 15,000 sqft. An acre is 43,560 sqft.... so it isn't going to cover much area.

If you are spraying 2-4-D with it, unless it has a surfactant, or depending on what surfactant you use, I'd do it at least a day before a rain. Some chemicals can be sprayed only an hour or two before a rain and still stick..... but like I said, a day in advance is safe.

I have used that before with 2-4-D.. it works well on my lawn.. I put out roughly 5 gal of it on close to 2 acres.. just beware.. it will really make the grass grow when it rains!

Hmm.. So when do you spray?? During the heat of the day, when things are dry, when rain is coming??

You spread it pretty thin then if you are only using 5 gal.
Not that you have to put it on at the recommended rate....because you don't have to. I'd rather go less than too much. Too much nitrogen will burn the grass.

Surfactant and crop oils---definite game changers.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
