I will try Air 8 & RGS this season. I will try to update my lawn journal with the good and bad from those products. I don't expect much if anything the first year though. We shall see.

I just went to go buy some product to find that none of the N-Ext products can be shipped to California anymore? Does anyone know what happened or if it's going to be available to California in the future? It doesn't look like Carbon-X is going to be available to us either. I'm so bummed right now.

In California and Hawaii, these products are classified as PGR's. As such, they are subject to all kinds of testing and verification similar to what Primo had to go through.

So you think we're SOL then?

Does anyone have a custom mix or alternative to N-ext products for us here in California to use?

Can you get Simple Gro Solutions stuff there? They have a liquid kelp/humic/fulvic acid, lots of fertilizer products, I think a thatch product (or that might be lawn star).

I honestly don't know. Air-8 and Dethatch seems to work where I've had issues in the past, but I don't know about the Humic and RGS. More time will tell I suppose?

Has any one developed a full blown plan for fescue using n-ext products and care to share? I am skeptical but I went a head and bought a bio stim pack. I put down the first application Sunday. I am curious about the seeding package.......and incorporating it into a program. My trouble is I have already invested in my seed, starter, and next round of fertilizer. I am going to go with Pete at gci ‘s suggestion of starter (my granular) RGS and Humic 12 at seeding.

Bigdrumnc, any special reason why you are going with RGS and Humic 12 instead of Air8? I kind of though air8 would be a good choice at seeding.

I have a few test plots going. So far not really much difference to be honest. I will be pulling profile shots at the end of the season to compare with the rest of my lawn. After next season I think I will do two soil tests: one test on soil from the test plots, and another on soil from the rest of the lawn. Based on the claims I would expect to see a noticeable difference in CEC. If that proves true I will begin using humics on my entire lawn despite lack of visible differences (higher CEC will let me add more calcium, which should help loosen my hard clay soil).

Yes I can, I actually ordered some the other day. Is there any difference between SLS and N-ext?

California makes it an absolute pain to sell into with all their state-specific rules and regulations. I know of a lot of people that just decide to cut sales to the state due to this. Humic probably causes cancer known to the state of California or some crazy thing like that.

Im not sure if this has been discussed but I was wondering if the 3% sulfur would effect pH levels in a lawn? I see some of the fertilizer type products of theirs contains sulfur.

No idea, actually, it was just easy to buy off amazon for a smaller amount/investment.

SLS is just soap, what n-ext product are you comparing it to?

He was using SLS to abbreviate Simple Lawn Solutions, the brand that makes an alternate product available to him, not to abbreviate Sodium Laureth Sulfate :)
