    Thinking of Going over to liquid fertilizer and been recommend to use 35n + 7.5 SO3 a total of 260kg ha.

    On the chafer application guide it says 750 Lt ha. would that be a 1000Lt in a cube as i am trying to work out what i require

    A cube is a cube is a cube. You are buying by volume not weight.

    Until you get a quote from Omex who quote by the tonne for a reason only known by themselves!! Whereas farmers apply by volume not weight so they just confuse the hell out of the job!

    Chafer are about the only ones in the world that trade liquid in cubes, globally it is traded in tonnes.

    Very easy to compare, just work out you pence per kg of nutrient on each product.

    Spoke to BFS, Yara, Omex, Bunns 12 months ago for supply before deciding to brew my own, Omex were the only ones that wanted to talk tonnes, far easier if they spoke cubes.

    Yes @Andrew K i quite agree!

    BFS, Omex and Bunn/Koch all sell by the tonne, so strange they were talking in cubes, perhaps there is a change afoot....
