Southern Ag Chelated Liquid Iron. Never tried it but I hear it works great! Just don't use too much or your lawn will turn BLK haha. Also it will stain anything it touches so watch for overspray.

I use Blade Iron available from Do My Own.

http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/turf-fuel-blade-iron-15-p-17267.html?utm_source=bronto&utm_medium=email&utm_term=%25%25$product.p7.title%25%25&utm_content=For+You:+9%25+OFF+Tempo+SC+Ultra+%2B+Sales+on+More+Pro+Products&utm_campaign=Product+Alert+Email+-+5/9/17

From the label:

Total Nitrogen (N).........................15.0%
15.0% Urea nitrogen
Iron (Fe)..........................................6.0%
6.0% Water soluble iron
Derived from: Urea, ferrous sulfate
heptahydrate, and citric acid.

Apply 2-8 oz. per 1000 ft. sq. every 7-14 days.

Use weekly or biweekly throughout growing season. 6 oz. provides 0.11 lb N / 1000 ft. sq. I use it every other week and my grass is green.

While $59 is pricey on the front end.your only using 6 oz. per thousand and it's a 2.5 gallon jug.That works out to $1.11 per thousand sq. ft. per application. For me, Milo is $12.98 or $5.19 per thousand. I use the Milorganite also.

I actually have some Ferrous Sulphate Heptahydrate. I've done a foliar spray with it before. I may just go that route.
I think that's a good solution to the issue. It's cheap and it works - what more could anyone ask.

I was spraying some the other day, nasty looking brown stuff when it's in the tank. I had gotten to up by a road when two ladies walked by and stammered "what are you doing?!" Relax ladies, it's iron, all natural, see the rust color. Away they went all smiles.

I've been using Feature 6-0-0 w/ 10% Fe. I use between 2.5oz & 3oz on my lawn.

https://www.epesthero.com/products/feature-6-0-0-water-soluble-micronutrients?variant=275338133513

On my yard it comes out to $1.67/app @ 3oz and I get 12 applications. Enough for probably 2 years.
