The Andersons Contec DG Fertilizer 18-3-18 is a granular fertilizer that optimizes turf nutrition with less downtime and no residue. When it comes into contact with water, it releases micro-particles that move quickly through the turf canopy and into the root zone. It reduces downtime for a firmer and residue-free playing surface. It also lessens the mower pickup of fertilizer particles. This product helps in correcting and preventing deficiencies during the growing season. Its granules show out against the lawn, making it easy to see where it is put and preventing overapplication. It is ideal for turfs, greens, and tees.

For use in
Turf, greens, and tees.
Immediately after application, apply a minimum of 0.2 inches of water to disperse particles into the root zone. Best results are achieved by splitting the irrigation into 2 applications at 10-15 minutes apart. See label for more instructions.

It requires less watering to disperse the nutrient granules allowing for less downtime and a drier and firmer playing surface.
For turfs, watering in this product will disperse each granule into thousands of particles. This will facilitate the movement of the nutrients into the soil. This particle dispersion will greatly reduce ball, shoe and mower pickup. Cold weather and/or cold water (lower than 45 degrees Fahrenheit / 7 degrees Celsius) can result in slower particle dispersion. Application to wet, close-cut golf turf may result in foliar staining, which will discolor the turf to a brown/black appearance. This can occur even if immediate irrigation or rainfall occurs. It is recommended that this product be applied to dry turf only.
For all applications: Immediately after application, apply a minimum of 0.2 inches of water to disperse particles into the root zone. Due to variations in temperature and water pH, best results are achieved by splitting the irrigation into 2 applications at 10 to15 minutes apart. This will allow for more thorough particle dispersion into the root zone. Cold weather (lower than 45 degrees Fahrenheit / 7 degrees Celsius) can result in slower particle dispersion.
For Cool Season Grasses: Apply at the MEDIUM RATE during the growing season. Use the LOW RATE during mid-summer (non-greens usage).
For Warm Season Grasses: Apply at the MEDIUM RATE during the growing season. Use the LOW RATE during summer stress.
Nitrogen Notice: For those states with nitrogen application restrictions, including but not limited to, MD, NH, NJ and VA, do not apply more than 2.78 pounds of this product per 1,000 square feet.
