But it is replaceing a smaller quantity of bagged fert in the programme unless you are targeting protein when it would be in addition. Just not a complete substitute...right?
Yes it’s replacing the later applications after an initial yield building dose of AN or Urea bagged product.

Some work I saw was creating full cover with early AN/Urea dose, then replacing subsequent solid applications with the 5:1 substitution thereafter.

So for example' Total dose 220kgN; start 100kg as solid, then 40, 40, 40 solid, or 40, 40, 8KgN as form urea(equiv to 40 normal), and the other options until you get 100kgN as standard fert, then 24kgN replacing 120 kgN as standard fert.

This 24kgN formaldehyde urea is supplied by 80L/ha over the 3 splits

Pretty sure you need decent GAI before you start so building blocks of biomass are there.


And no I am not in any way advertising it.
