Don't think so, when I've used CAN any spilt in the yard just turns to a grey sludge.
Why can't you just spin it in with this rain were getting at the minute it'll soon be available to the plant.

Sounds like you’re wanting to apply N to get into plant quick, suggest using a folia N which is more efficient that soil take up. If you want advice on products then speak to Aiva fertiliser

CAN is chalk and ammonium nitrate so after stirring the fertiliser you would have to allow the chalk to precipitate out before decanting the ammonium nitrate liquor to the sprayer.

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
