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.
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.
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.

I have an older scotts drop spreader, called a precision flow control model and do not know what settings to use with the Scotts turf builder I have purchased.
ANSWER : Hi,
The best way is to just place a small amount… like 5 lb in the hopper…start with it barely open and see how far you get,,, then compute from there what you need…
The settings they give you are guesamates at best and are often set to place too much… why not??? they are selling you a product!!
