So here are the general rules: For fertilizers put the setting a notch or two above half. For example, if there are 20 notches on the spreader, 11-12 would be the setting. You don`t have to cover every square inch of turf to get good results, so if you think that`s too much, drop to a notch below half.
SPREADER SETTINGS FOR THIS PRODUCT

The suggested settings should provide an application rate of 3.5 pounds per 1,000 square feet or 150 pounds per acre. Application rates will vary dependent upon speed, equipment wear and condition of spreader.

In general, the smaller you set your spreader setting the smaller the hole and the slower the material releases from the hopper. There are many different brands of spreaders on the market, and, new or old, it is highly recommended to properly calibrate your spreader before the first use in the spring.
The three types of lawn spreaders are scoop-style spreaders, broadcast spreaders and handheld spreaders. Handheld spreaders distribute fertilizer, seeds or ice melt over small areas. Broadcast-type handheld spreaders have a small hopper, handle, dial and crank. Some models offer adjustable arm support.
If you want to use a manual process to find out the best estimate for your spreader setting, a good starting point is to consider the following: 1 lb per 1,000 sq ft = 43.6 lbs per acre. 100 lbs per acre = 2.5 lbs per 1,000 square feet.
For more substantial areas—up to 15,000 square feet—the Scotts® Turf Builder® Edgeguard® DLX Broadcast Spreader, with its large hopper, is ideal. If you`re lucky enough to have an extra large lawn, use the Scotts® Elite Spreader. The hopper can hold enough product to cover 20,000 square feet.
If this is what you meant, or those two spreaders are compatible with settings, you can use setting 2 3/4 for putting out 1.15 lbs per 1000 sq/ft, 5 1/4 for 2.3lbs per 1000 sq/ft, or 9 for putting out 4.6 lbs per 1000 sq/ft.
What setting do I use on a rotary spreader to apply Ferti-Lome Centipede Lawn Fertilizer 15-0-15? You would apply the Ferti-Lome Centipede Lawn Fertilizer 15-0-15 at a rate of 4 lbs per 1,000 square feet.
Spreading height

The spreader should be 75cm over the crop. This should be adjusted as the growing season moves on. For example, the spreader should be 75cm over a crop of grass or an emerging crop of spring barley; it should also be 75cm above a wheat crop at GS30.

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!!
