Slide 9

When the pack says it covers such a variety of feet, What rate of N would they say they are suggesting? 24 – 5 – 11 It is a 50 lb pack and it says it covers 12,000 square feet. What number of pounds of N per 1000 will be connected per 1000? .24N x 50lb = 1.0 Lb N/1000 12K

Slide 10

What do you get from this pack of compost? 50 lbs Net Weight 12 lbs of Nitrogen 2.5 lbs of Phosphorus 5.5 lbs of Potassium The sack covers 12,000 sq ft. All out expense for 1 lb Nitrogen for each 1000 square feet is $1.25

Slide 11

Lets Look at Another Brand 29 – 3 - 4 It is a 15.52 lb sack and it says it covers 5000 square feet. What number of pounds of N will be connected per 1000? .29N x 15.52lb = .90 lbs N/1000 5K

Slide 12

What do you get from this sack of compost? 15.52 lbs Net Weight 4.5 lbs of Nitrogen .46 lbs of Phosphorus .62 lbs of Potassium At 1 lb N for every 1000 this pack just covers 4500 sq. ft. All out expense for 1 lb Nitrogen for every 1000 square feet is $5.10

Slide 13

What do you get from this container of manure? 25 lbs Net Weight 6 lbs of Nitrogen 1.25 lbs of Phosphorus 2.75 lbs of Potassium The can covers 6,000 sq ft. All out expense for 1 lb Nitrogen for each 1000 square feet is $2.16

Slide 14

What do you get from this pack of compost? 20 lbs Net Weight 4.2 lbs of Nitrogen 0 lbs of Phosphorus 0 lbs of Potassium 4.8 lbs Sulfur The sack covers 4,200 sq ft. Complete expense for 1 lb Nitrogen for each 1000 square feet is $.87

Slide 15

What is your yearly cost to treat 6,000 sq. ft.? 1 sack 24-5-11 $14.99 (½ spring ½ fall) 3 packs 21-0-0 $11.01 (.75 - .50 lb N/Month) Total Cost $26.00 (Equals 4.1 lbs N/1000/year) OR 4 packs of "Scotts Turf Builder $91.92 (Equals 3 Lbs N/1000/year)

Area Formulas for Circles and Trapezoids S 1 h Radius (r) 90 0 S 2 Area = π r 2 S 1 + S 2 π = 3.14 Area = x h 2 r = 43 ft 3.14 x 43 x 43 = 5805.9 ft 2

Slide 19

Lets do an Example! S 1 = 70 A h =60 S 3 = 90 S 2 = 100 S 4 = 50 90 0 C B S 5 = 35 Area A = Trapezoid Area B = Triangle Area C = Rectangle ( ) 100 + 70 + 35 x 50 + 90 x 50 = 10,475 sq ft. x 60 2

Slide 20

How Much Fertilizer do I Apply? Complete zone = 10,475 sq. ft. Rate = 1 lb. Nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. Illustration 24 – 5 – 11 Divide the examination into 100.  If the investigation is 24% Nitrogen.  100 partitioned by 24 = 4.17.  That implies you would need to apply 4.17 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. to apply a real rate of 1 lb of Nitrogen for each application. 4.17 x 10.475 = 43.68 lbs.

Measure an advantageous separation to run the spreader: the more drawn out the separation, the more exact the adjustment. ________ft.

Slide 24

Continued 3. Increase the progression 1 esteem by step 2 quality to compute the range secured by the spreader. ________ft 2 4. Measure a part of the item and spot into spreader. ________lb.

Slide 25

Continued 5. Push the spreader over the region beforehand measured in step 3, being mindful so as to stop the spreader on and correctly toward the starting and end of the course. 6. Measure the measure of item left in the spreader. ________lb.

Slide 26

Continued 7. Subtract the number in step 6 from the number in step 4. This is the measure of item connected to the zone you have measured. ________lb. 8. Isolate the number in step 7 by the number in step 3 to give lb. connected per square foot. ________lb./ft 2

Slide 27

Continued 9. Duplicate the number in step 8 by 1000 to give lb. item/1000 ft 2 ________lb./1000 ft 2 10. Conform the spreader setting and rehash the alignment if important until the spreader is applying the suggested rate recorded on the sack.
