How To Spread Small Quantities Over a Large Area

This is my tip when you need to spread small quantities over a large area, mix them with a product (example kelp) that will be applied at a high rate to act as a carrier. When you mix everything together it can make it much easier to ensure an even distribution rather than trying to precisely apply each product individually.

In the image this is my spreader that contains some kelp (brown/tan) in the bottom and then copper sulfate (blue) and manganese sulfate (white). I will hand mix all three of these together and then add in some more kelp which with be further mixed to ensure an even distribution before applying. This does save time and creates a consistent end product distribution.
