APPLICATION EQUIPMENT AND INSTRUCTIONS
This can be applied with a hand held, drop, or broadcast (rotary) spreader. For best results, apply this evenly and uniformly over the treated area avoiding streaking, skips or overlaps.
Before each application, determine the correct amount (lbs.) to place in the spreader hopper for the area to be treated. For example, if the label states to apply 5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. and your area to treat is 2,000 sq. ft. then place 10 lbs. in the hopper and set the spreader setting at 4-1/2 (per table below) if using an Accugreen drop spreader.
If using the Ferti-lome Yard Right Hand Held Spreader, place 1 lb. in the spreader hopper for each 200 sq. ft. area to be treated. Adjust setting selector to number 2. Apply evenly over area, walking at an even pace while turning hand crank steadily.
A more uniform application can be made by spreading one-half of the recommended amounts over the treated area and then applying the remaining one-half of this at a right angle to the previous application direction.
