Set your spreader so that it’s ¾ open when engaged. If, for example, the spreader is calibrated 1 to 20, set it at 15. Place eight pounds of Milorganite into the spreader’s hopper. This is about one-fifth bag, or 8 lbs., of Milorganite, which is equivalent to 24 cups.
For a pushed broadcast spreader, Scotts recommends a setting of 2 1/4 when over seeding and a bare-lawn setting of 4. For application with a handheld broadcast spreader, use a setting of 3 when over seeding and 4 when planting a bare lawn.
