Can you safely do this without damaging crop?

Had 30mm of rain Thursday/Friday so a bit sticky. Forecast-4 tonight so thought I might get it on early tomorrow.

It's on w.barley and oilseed rape.

First year liquid fert on arable.

Crack on, done it plenty of times. If its wet 3 weeks and you don't get on then the crop will suffer more than a wee bit scorch. I would be more worried if the leaf was dry and there were cold winds. I was going to go this morning but it wasn't hard enough, got some fields I might get tomorrow but some have become quite wet quite quickly.

Ok if leaf dry and not using UAN . N20 probably safest liquid option.
