Quite happy to be proved wrong but I need to apply 48units/ac on spring barley,according to omex chart this equates to 197 l/ha is this correct or am I missing something?I’m not sure you have your head around it? 24 and 30 from the same company is different concentrations of N but normally done to allow different amounts of S.
24N from Omex and 30N from yara would be almost exactly the same. 1 tonne would give 240kgs of N and 1 cube would give 300kgs of N. You would have to buy the same amount and apply the same rate to get the same amount of N.
That’s correct if using Omex 24. Would give 60kgs / ha of N and 19kgs / ha of S.
Wasn't stating anything,liquid is new to me,what i was trying to say was that 788lts(1t) of omex 24n will cover the same acreage as 1t 24% granular,both will give me 48units across 10 acsThat’s correct if using Omex 24. Would give 60kgs / ha of N and 19kgs / ha of S.
It was your statement about different concentrations that was confusing. For example to get 60kgs of N of Yara 29 you would need 207ls but it would give 24.6kgs of S.
I'm new to it too, and I'm happy to be corrected.Wasn't stating anything,liquid is new to me,what i was trying to say was that 788lts(1t) of omex 24n will cover the same acreage as 1t 24% granular,both will give me 48units across 10 acs
780lts omex 24n is the same as 1ton of granular 24n,bit more complicated but means we can cover more ground on a fill,think Yara you need 1000lts to be the same as granular,omex obviously more concentrated.
Your getting confused with weights and volume between the different companies.
Get a chart from them. Know someone who went wrong with the agrii stuff and ended up under dosing as he used the wrong chart from Omex or Yara. That’s was Agriis own stuff. As opposed to Omex through AgriiHope I'm working it out correctly when applying it !
Ours is from Agrii.
Yes took a bit to get my head round it,omex site helped, 24n is actually 30n but applied at a reduced rate of around 780lts rather than 1000lts which brings it down to 24n,cuts down on transport and storage I suppose,granular is so much easier to work out!
Thanks for dragging me into this!
That depends on the price. Savings using liquid mostly depend on farm logistics, not price as liquid is usually priced against Nitram or Extran. Start thinking about clearing grain sheds early for bagged fertiliser storage then double handling the bags & disposing of the empties then pumping bulk liquid seems easier when you have excess sprayer capacity.So if your putting 110 units per acre in granular how much could you save using liquid instead?
