I was at Star Nursery the other day, and they have a unit that will infuse
liquid into regular irrigation lines on a timed basis. It was $249 for
tank, timers, electric actuator valves, other valves, etc. Does anyone have
one of these? Any input? Experiences?
I don't know about home chemigation units. Chemigation units for
farmers need check valves and such to prevent water supply
contamination. They also have to be inspected. Does that apply to
home sized units?
Quick feeding like chem lawn, miracal grow, or any liqued on lawns
releases the nitrogen immediatly, immediate release can kill or stress
a lawn if not carefull, continious use of quick feeding is how you
get thatch. The one year I went the liqued route is the only year I
had a mess of thatch. Slow release fertiliser as in granules like
Scotts release slowly over weeks and last over a month, with scotts I
get no thatch. Also liqued results dont last as long, for a quick
greening or once twice a year liqued should be safe but be carefull as
overfertilising weakens grass and makes it suceptable to many other
diseases,especialy when it gets real hot or humid. For the newest and
best thing google Harvard lawn, or Harvard fertiliser project, its a
new theory on fertilising that I need to look into. The real issue is
