No. Due to the powdery consistency of ag lime and the design of the openings on the bottom of the spreader, powdered ag lime will not work in these models.

Because of the many brands of fertilizer, Gandy provides calibration instructions based on the fertilizer’s density in pounds per cubic foot. Step-by-step instructions allow you to accurately set your rate.

Will the spreader handle native grasses?

No. Native grasses have long awns and hairy appendages that make the seed extremely light and fluffy. These non-debearded seeds have a tendency to clog openings and require constant monitoring.
