The label calls for 2 to 3 pounds per 1000 square feet. If your spreader settings go from 1 to 10 (1 letting out the least and 10 letting out the most) you typically want to be around a 2 setting. If your spreader goes from 1 to 20, you should probably be around a 4 setting.
If you are using a drop spreader, such as Scott`s Classic Drop Spreader, and using a Yard Mastery granular fertilizer, you will want to set your spreader at a 7.
Setting: 5 lbs. / 1,000 sq.
Calibrating a spreader involves measuring the product output of a spreader over a specific area so that it can continue to be reliably used. You may need a scale for weighing the material to accurately calibrate and measure product output. Place this amount in the spreader. Mark off the area.
A broadcast spreader will take extra care to make sure different parts of the lawn receive an even coverage. A drop spreader, as previously mentioned, is more precise because it doesn`t broadcast the granular product or seed and doesn`t change the amount spread based on a changing walking pace.
Spreader calibration consists of two processes. First, the spread pattern must be adjusted to distribute the fertilizer particles uniformly. Second, the amount of fertilizer spread over the desired area must be measured and adjusted, if necessary, to equal the recommended application rate.
