How to Apply

Apply evenly with a lawn spreader as a one pass application. A two-pass application, criss-crossing the area at half the rate each time is equal to one application. The following settings are approximate for applying contents of this package at a suggested rate of 3.6 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Settings are based on an average walking speed. Reduce setting for slower speed; raise setting for higher speed. Check your spreader on 250 square feet and adjust to apply at the rate of 0.9 pound per 250 square feet.

Spreader Settings

This product may be applied with drop or rotary-type spreaders. Settings shown in the table are approximate for new equipment. Calibrate the spreader according to the manufacturer’s directions. Initial spreader settings may require adjustment to deliver the recommended application rate under actual application conditions. The desired calibration setting may be marked or recorded for future reference.
