Great info in here, thank you guys. This is probably a bit off topic, but why should someone purchase K4L F/H/K blend over the Extreme Blend?

From previous contact with Kelp4less about the extreme blend, I was told it was 70% amino acids, 10% H/F/K each. For better or worse. So it depends on your goals. Fairly low H/F/K counts.

I've been happy with the extreme blend from k4L. I also add extra humic to the mix.I'm sure he used non reputable products.

TShir23 How often do you apply the Extreme Blend and do you use a hose end sprayer?

Thanks. I was applying Extreme Blend weekly with a hose end sprayer and I believe it was too frequent as the lawn looked dry. Do you think the 70% Amino Acids is too strong to apply weekly? I see where you are adding humic to your application.

If I was going to do it weekly I would maybe lower the dosage.
Yes I just started adding the extra humic. I wanted to try and make my own liquid dethacther/aerate so I asked k4l what their recommendation would be on top of the extreme blend. They suggested that I add extra humic and also said I could add a small amount of yucca extract. So I will probably add the yucca next season.

I do the extreme blend every 2 wks and add the humic monthly.

I believe the amino should help with drought conditions and should also give a little growth push after you spray it. I would try every 2 wks or cut back on the mix rate.
