    Anyone use it and find any better uptake/growth in a dry time than with prilled compound npk etc? Heard a couple of anecdotal examples of it working better off a couple of farmers the other day and will try anything once. TIA

    I put some on after first cut on Monday because it's so dry. Can't say it's greened up much quicker. Will keep you posted.

    Yes used it last couple of years.Contractor with Chafer trailed sprayer and 24m autosteer. On a cost per unit its more expensive,but gets to work almost straight away,unlike prills in a dry spell.
