This product is 5 Gallons of Greene EfFect 7-0-0 and is shipped in two 2.5 gallon buckets.

The analysis for this product is 7-0-0.

This means 7% of the liquid is nitrogen (remember, the 3 numbers are your macros, N-P-K). But there is also a note that this product contains 6% Iron.

What this is literally telling you is:

  • 7% of everything in this bottle in nitrogen
  • 6% of everything in this bottle is iron

The recommended application rate is 8 oz/1,000 sq ft.

Here’s the end result of breaking down the math into lbs/1,000 sq ft:

You’ll get 0.04 lbs N with an 8 oz/gallon application rate. Not much to write home about right?

You guys are used to putting down some real “pounds on the ground” and at least getting .5 or .75 lbs/N/1,000 sq ft… but that’s with our granular apps.

That’s where the other piece kicks in and that’s the Fe - our old buddy IRON!

Iron is what gives lawns a deeper “blue” look that really sets them off. Our best friend Milo contains iron and that’s one reason we love him… but sometimes, you need just a little boost in between and that’s where this product really does shine.

You’ll get .038 lbs Fe with an 8 oz/gallon application rate (remember, 1 gallon covers 1,000 square feet). Which also seems unimpressive until you remember the following facts.

Nitrogen is a “Macronutrient” meaning there is a lot more of it needed for optimum plant health. In fact, it’s the mack-daddy of the macros! We lawn care nuts are addicted to it!

But there are some drawbacks to too much N - namely - over-pushing of growth. I think we do just fine with our N rates, pushing them to the max using Milo of course.

Iron, on the other hand, is a “Micronutrient” meaning you only need small, spoon-fed amounts in order to push plants to optimum levels. It takes much less “pounds on the ground” of iron to get a visual response.

The recommended amount of iron in the soil is 2-4 ppm. Nitrogen on the other hand, is 8-16 ppm.

And that is where the secret weapon of the 7-0-0 Greene Effect is revealed.

The iron is like a little liquid green bomb that you can apply in between your regular fert apps to keep everything looking double dark WITHOUT pushing a flush of growth. The N that is in the product is certainly going to help, but it’s really the iron we want.

So how long will this last you?

The recommended application rate is 8 oz/1,000 sq ft.

This product is shipped in two 2.5-gallon jugs.

  • 1 gallon = 128 oz
  • 2.5 gallons = 320 oz
  • 5 gallons = 640 oz

At the app rate of 8 oz/1,000 sq ft, you will get:

  • 16,000 sq ft of coverage from a single gallon
  • 40,000 sq ft of coverage from a 2.5-gallon jug
  • 80,000 sq ft of coverage from the full 5 gallons 

For a 5,000 sq ft lawn, this means you will get 16 total applications: 

8 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 40 oz

640 oz/40 oz = 16 total applications 

Keep this in mind when you decide how much you need. If your yard is not that big, consider splitting with a neighbor or family member.
