Enter your size of the area to be fertilized in Square Feet or Acres, your soil test Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium requirements in pounds per 1000 sq.ft. or pounds per acre, and your fertilizer bag Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium analysis in the form below and press the "Calculate" button.
Results will be calculated with each element as the primary requirement. A final result "ALL" will be provided that indicates the rate of application that insures that all requirements are met. If the ratio of the bagged fertilizer is not in general agreement with the soiltest requirements then wastage and possible plant damage may occur.
