So the other day I purchased some Lime Rite to apply to my yard…the only problem is there are no instructions on what the set my drop spreader to. I’m looking to put down 40 lbs per 1000 sq feet.

I have a Accu Green 3000 Drop Spreader.

Any ideas?

I may have found the answer to my question so I’ll share for everyone.

These settings are for another type of pelletized lime so I’m hoping the two aren’t completely different.

Approximate Spreader Settings
Settings per 1,000 Sq. Ft. 8# 20# 40#
Earthway 2100 12 14 16
Scotts AccuGreen 3000 5 7 10
Scotts SpeedyGreen 3000 5 7 10
Cyclone/Spyker 3 5 7

Dear MikeHGA79: I must have been your shadow last week. I bought the exact same product and have the exact same spreader and could not find the spreader book. Thank you for the timely info….
