@Naidu All my bags are 50lbs.. Those 40lb bags are just for online sales due to shipping cost.. The Carbon X DIY has dropped to a 45lb bag I believe..

I'd love to see them. How many times do you mow to get a pattern like that? Do you maintain lawns for a living? I'm not trying to be nosey just wondering how you can get a lawn to look so good. That's not normal homeowner grade lawn maintenance. You must be a pro professional lawn keeper, LOL. :thumbup:

Man! Simply gorgeous! But please share, what is your application schedule? I know you used the 11-11-11 for starter but what was the schedule for everything else you used? Also, I don’t have an acre lot here in Northern Va, so what is the application rate for smaller lawns? I’m definitely going to add this to my Jonathan Green regimen this coming fall and spring.

I notice that ProPeat uses MOP as their K source while Carbon Earth uses SOP. Thoughts on one vs. the other?

I cant speak to the effectiveness of the potassium in each products but there are some key differences between the two.

Chloride makes up a significant component of MOP. While this is preferable for some crops, it can be damaging to others that are sensitive to chlorides, such as some fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Many chloride-sensitive crops fall into the high-value category, so optimizing quality and yield are especially critical.

Additionally, if MOP is added to soils already rich in chlorides, toxicity can occur. When working with chloride-sensitive crops or chloride-rich soils, SOP provides an optimal solution, as it is substantially lower in chlorides.

ADDED SULFUR
In addition to potassium, potassium sulfate also provides plant-available sulfur. Sulfur deficiencies have become increasingly common in recent years, making products that include the secondary nutrient increasingly desirable.

LOWER SALINITY
Potassium sulfate has a lower salt index than most potash fertilizers, making it the preferred choice when soil salinity is a concern.

ORGANIC CERTIFICATION
Unlike MOP, SOP can be certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic agriculture. However, it’s important to note that this is only true of SOP that was not produced synthetically.
