FeRROMEC AC liquid iron

Post by BassBoss » Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:19 pm

Just curious if this is a good liquid iron to put on my lawn. My turf man suggested it. I paid $34 for 2.5 gallons. I plan to mix with my Pgr app every 3 weeks. Directions recommend using 2 gallons of water per 1000 ft2 but my sprayer is calibrated and uses 1 gal. Should I do low dose or 1/2 dose. Dosage rate is 4-10 oz per 1000 ft 2. Thanks y’all.

It works well. Be careful though as it will stain concrete. I use it on bluegrass at alittle less than 4 oz/M. I see you are on 419 so you might need to up the rate alittle, but start at 4 and go up from there. I use it in alittle less than 1 gal/M carrier volume with no issues, so you should be ok with how you are currently calibrated to spray. No issues at all mixing it with trinexapac-ethyl.

Also, I had to re-read the label as I didn't think they recommended a 2 gal/M carrier. From the label,

So the 2 gal/M carrier recommendation is when tank mixing it with amine herbicides.

I've seen a number of iron products like that on DoMyOwn. A lot of varying brands have copied the formula. Should all work well.

I looked at that one and ended up buying tgp blade iron. I was looking for liquids cause I'm getting tired of desolving FEature with my PGR apps.

Seems kinda expensive to me. 16 oz for 500 ft2. Would cost me a fortune.

I think FEature is one of the few out there that won't stain. Any of the premixed liquids are going to stain most likely.

Feature is a cool product but I don't like messing with powders with a 2gallon sprayer. Now when I get a tow behind sprayer or something similar I will only use feature because it's a one time fill up. I use something very similar to Ferromc AC right now it's called Prosolutions 15-0-0 and it's sold at tractor supply check them out.
