Q&A Home

Geoffrey from Tamap, Fl writes,

Can you collaborate with the major manufacturers of the spreaders to determine the proper settings?

What is the setting on X spreader? All the answers below say to refer to the manufacturer of the spreader. Asking Scotts does no good as they say Arena is not their product so they don't know the variables to determine what the setting would be. It would be more helpful to your customers to buy a few of the most popular spreaders and find out what the settings should be. There is an obvious need for that information that the manufacturers seem unable to help with.


We spoke with the manufacturer, Valent USA Corp on the proper settings using a Scotts Spreader using Arena .25 Granules.  You will want to set the speader setting at "I" or "J" to give you 80lb-100lb of product per acre depending on the pests you are treating. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
