In most applications 400 lb per acre is a good starting point. This is approximately equal to 1 lb per 100 ft2 (square feet).·
Yard & Garden:
- Vegetables and Fruits: see the McGeary Organics Fertilizer Application Guide for Vegetables and Fruits.
Recommendations range from 4 to 10 lb per 100 ft2 depending on the crop grown. For yard information you can check out natural lawn care!
- Flowering Annuals: apply 4 lb per 100 ft2 prior to planting and 4 lb per 100 ft2 again in mid summer.
- Flowering Perennials: apply 4 lb per 100 ft2 prior to shoot growth in the spring, and again in late fall for late blooming plants.
Corn use up to 600 lb per acre. This should be adjusted based on manure applications and existing soil nutrients as determined by soil testing. Ideally this should be put in the row at planting.
