I took over my Dad's lawn a few years ago. The only product I can get in his area (Myrtle Beach, SC) is dried molasis from the feed store. Can I put down molasis at 20 LB per 1,000 sq feet 3 times a year? Or should I reduce the rate some. (His lawn is almost in maintenace mode - I salvaged his lawn (8,000 sq ft). I fill my suit case to 50lb of organic stuff each time i go to visit)

From Howard's article section:


Dry Molasses (Dried Molasses)

Dry molasses isn’t dried molasses. It’s a grain residue carrier, such as bits of soy meal, that is sprayed and covered with liquid molasses. It’s an excellent carbon source that stimulates beneficial microorganisms. And, it repels fire ants. Apply to soil for landscaping at 20 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. for ideal results. Farmers and ranchers can use it at much lower rates and still get acceptable results. As little as 100–200 lbs. per acre can be beneficial. Apply when the air and ground are dry to avoid creating a sticky mess. It cannot be mixed with water and sprayed.

Sandih didn't come out and say it but you can't apply too much until you smother the grass. It might be sticky to walk on for a few days, but it won't hurt anything.
