10-0-20 + iron

3 posts in this topic

Where can you buy this?? Everywhere I've looked they have the high nitrogen formula. Do you buy the iron separately and mix it in?? I want to build root system not above ground growth. Thanks

Mine is a Lesco product.

You may be able to go to a feed store and ask them to make the blend for you.

By the time you go to a feed store and ask them for a blend, it'll probably cost as much as either having a bag or two shipped, or picking up some if you make a trip to the cities.

10-0-20 isn't the magical blend, just be aware that there are other blends of fertilizers out there that aren't 25+ in the Nitrogen column, and make sure there's an amount of slow release in the fertilizer, usually sulfur or urea coated.

This is what keeps your fertilizer feeding the turf for over a period of time, whereas a straight ag fertilizer has minimal if any slow release to it, which will give you a huge surge of fertilizer for a short period of time (2 weeks +/-) and then nothing again.

Hotrod is right, that the product that he uses is from a company called Lesco, although last year they were bought out by John Deere Landscapes. If you go to the one in White Bear Lake and tell Gary you're from FishingMinnesota, he's willing to give you a discount.

If you do a search for either Lesco or John Deere Landscapes, you can get the HSOforum which will tell you the locations.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
