The Andersons Lean & Green™ 2-0-0 is a professional-grade lawn iron supplement designed to deepen and intensify your lawn's color without contributing to excessive top growth. It is safe for use on all turf types and can be applied any time during the growing season, but is especially beneficial in the summer when lawns tend to turn yellow as a result of stress. Other lawn iron supplements use ferric oxide (Fe3+) as their iron source. The availability of Fe3+ is highly dependent on the soil pH, and is mostly available in acidic soils (pH of less than 7). For each one unit in pH rise, Fe3+ availability reduces 1,000 fold! The iron source in Lean & Green™ is ferrous sulfate (Fe2+), a highly plant available form of iron that is not impacted by soil pH ranges. This is especially beneficial considering most iron deficiencies occur in high pH soils.

Lean & Green™ can be applied in conjunction with another fertilizer at the time of application and with fertilizer programs.

The spreader settings for this product were established using standard equipment available from the spreader manufacturer at swath widths and speeds typically used within the industry. Many variables such as walking speed, terrain, particle size, density, and spreader condition can affect these settings. Spreader settings are intended as a guide and unit calibration should still be performed to ensure proper application rates. They are not intended to replace calibration. The Andersons recommends the use of broadcast spreader for its products.
