3 Applications or 5 Applications
What do you think is better to promote?

I do 3 using slow release Anderson products with a Winterizer as a option.
The big companies push 5 or 6.
I live in the midwest with all cool season grass.

I feel that it is much better for a timing standpoint,with the drought we had last it made no sense to me to do applications mid June-July.

I still put down the same amount of fertilizer but with 3 applications.
I always make sure my customers have good weed control and will go back if I need to.

What do you Pros think.
