What application rates are you using.  Does kaolin clay (not surround) need
a spreader/sticker?

Thanks,

Ozzie,

I started out using straight kaolin 3 years ago and then bought some
Surround to see if it worked any better.  I think it spreads a little
easier.  Last year I mixed the two together 50/50 because I'm trying to
use the kaolin up.  My mixture worked just fine.
