Liquid fertiliser advice needed???

I don't need any liquid fertiliser or nitrogen but someone else does
Is it right that it's bought in concentrated form then diluted?
Is it the best thing since sliced bread?
What application per acre is used?

Most liquid N here is 28-0-0 uan. It’s a lot of product to haul around per unit of N. I’ve diluted it when crop is stressed or temperature is high. It’s a great product but as all things comes with issues. I was all liquid fir a number of years but gone back to dry purely on cost. 1.25 litres of roughly one unit of N

With the price of bagged fert is foliar applied NPK plus trace worth a go.
Never be the same but could be tonic at correct time possibly?

With adequate NPKS in the soil too that would encourage roof growth therefore making take up of residual N easier for the crop. Like it or not we will need the N in the soil from a some source.
