Application rates for 8-1-8 XGN DIY vary:
Min: 2 lbs/1,000 sq ft - spoon-feeding this will give 0.16 lbs N/1,000 sq ft
Max: 9 lbs/1,000 sq ft - top dressing this will give 0.72 lbs N/1,000 sq ft
The rate I recommend is 4 lbs/1,000 sq ft which will yield 0.32 lbs N/1,000 sq ft.
At this rate, you will have a nice, slow-release feed that won’t excite the disease but will still feed the lawn, but even more importantly, it has potassium which is incredible for helping the lawn during a time of stress.
At an application rate of 4 lbs/1,000 sq ft:

Note for 2020: This is the improved formulation of X-GREEN from Carbon Earth with CRRP Technology (the peptides). Due to new shipping rules, we have had to reduce the size to a 45lb bag. We also rebranded the label to be more DIY friendly (XGN DIY) and now we have spreader settings for all Scotts spreaders and Earthway too.
XGN DIY is the EXACT same product as the professional version branded as X-GREEN.
Carbon Release, Root Promoting
Carbon release, root promoting technology developed by Carbon Earth features the homogenization of n-p-k inputs with a carbon (biochar) carrier and infused with root hair promoting peptides. This unique process allows Carbon Earth products to provide necessary conventional fertilizer inputs for plant response predictability, while also focusing on soil tilth, health, and root zone performance.
CAUTION: This product can stain concrete surfaces. Be sure to thoroughly clean up surfaces immediately after application before rain or irrigation.
Your Milorganite alternative - 8-1-8 XGN DIY is the latest release to the DIY Pro-sumer marketplace from Carbon Earth Company. Use it any time of year for slow release greening that will not burn the lawn. Increased potassium helps with heat and drought stress recovery.
In fall, higher available rates make XGN DIY an excellent top dressing and seed-starting fertilizer that provides N-P-K and micronutrients needed in new seeding situations.
Greens Grade prills look similar to Milorganite and flow easily through most spreaders, settings included on the bag. XGN DIY is 4% iron for that deeper, darker green we like.
From the Manufacturer: X-Green by Carbon Earth is the first and only bio-char based homogeneous fertilizer on the market. There is no product on the market that has everything in the prill that we have.
X-GReeN is an S-G-N 90, micro-prill size designed for golf greens and high-performance turf. It can be used on all turf types, including centipede, St Augustine, and reel mowed turf types.
The small prill size allows for unsurpassed flowability, product coverage, and turf canopy penetration. It is designed to break down quickly when in contact with water.
X-GReeN is a homogeneous fertilizer meaning each prill in the bag contains all the nutrients listed on the label. There is no issue with distribution or coverage because each prill contains every ingredient in equal proportions.
X-GReeN is uniquely formulated to slowly deliver its nutrients needed for color, root development, and increased microbial activity. It contains homogenized organic fertilizer, fixed carbon (biochar) with the best synthetic inputs to achieve this along with CRRP technology.
