Best Turf Supreme 16-6-8 lawn fertilizer is a brand of granular product manufactured by the Simplot Companies. It is a pelletized fertilizer that is distributed onto established lawns and turf using a walking drop or broadcast spreader. The nitrogen-rich formulation has a guaranteed analysis of 16-6-8 and is manufactured to prevent iron stains on adjacent sidewalks.
The recommended rate of distribution is one 50-pound bag for every 8,000 square feet of turf expanse. Various spreader tools have different dial and calibration settings to achieve the appropriate spread of the product over the surface of the lawn.
Set your Scotts spreader model to setting M on the "Micrometer" rate setting barrel dial; it's centered on the underside of the push handle.
Adjust the dial of your Spyker/Best branded spreader model number 34, 44 or 64 by turning the white 9-digit dial located at the base of the hopper facing the push handle to 5.
Dial your Earthway spreader to setting 17 by sliding the small knob at the top of the handle up or down to align it with the spread rate of 17 marked on the adjacent gauge casing.
Set your Lesco spreader rate control dial, located at the side of the hopper between the rate control arm and the operating on-off lever, to setting L.
