I have no clue...however you"re shooting for 1 pound P or so per thousand. That works out to 3.7 pounds per thousand also of 20-27-5.My guess is that"s going to be a low establishing on your drop spreader, but I"d test that by weighing out 3.7 pounds or so, and adjusting till it goes 1,000 square feet. Then record that setting.

I am not certain of the setting however this is what I understand. I have actually a Scottsdale drop spreader. I just put out 3 lbs of KBG seed over 1300ish sqft. I was making use of setting 4 and had to walk over the lawn 4-7 times to get it all out. KBG seed is exceptionally small Vigoro products are very large partials so I would certainly begin through establishing 10-15 and just watch how it is coming out.< Post made by means of Android >

Simpboy, do you think the Vigoro granule size is much larger than Milorganite granule size? I ask because for Milorganite, the recommfinished setting on a Scotts Accugreen 3000 is 10 for spreading 36 lb. over 1500 square feet (aka 24 lb. per 1000 square feet). If Vigoro granules are the very same size, he"s looking at spanalysis 24 lb/1000 instead of the recommfinished 3.7 lb/1000. So instead of dropping 1 lb. of phosphorous and around .74 lb. of nitrogen per 1000, he would drop 6.5 lb. of phosphorous and 4.8 lb. of nitrogen per 1000. This is, of course, assuming he owns a Scotts Accugreen drop spreader, which he has actually not showed.Even if the Vigoro granules are somewhat larger than Milorganite, he requirements to spread at a rate 1/6 that of the recommfinished Milorganite drop rate. I can not imagine the Vigoro granules are huge sufficient to consist of for that big of a difference in application prices. I still think he"d be wise to ease into this at reduced settings.
