Any opinions on Nurture N? Considering it with liquid N first and foremost then with glypo.
Will we see a moic or more efficient use of N?

Just using straight cane molasses here rather than these premium products like nurture and boost.
1l every time through with the sprayer.

How do you measure out bulk molasses? Currently hand-pumping it out into a jug from a 205l drum, which isn't very fun or fast.
I would like to move to a gravity-fed setup from an IBC. Do you all just measure it out into jugs? weigh it? expensive flow meter?

Use ibc gauge? I don’t think you need to be ultra accurate with molasses

Ibc on pallets measured in to 20l spray can with an enlarged hole to hit. Do this with Mn and Molasses

I’m on IBC number 2 of QLF terrafed, first 1 turned up with no spout, wouldn’t have been a problem as I’ve a few old spouts but it was a bigger fitting than all the 2” stuff I’ve seen before, so spent money on some fittings to make a spout. Next ibc turns up and back to a 2” fitting. Anyone know how many different thread sizes are used on ibc tanks? 🤦‍♂️

As above, I just pump it straight out of IBC, use the scale on IBC or go through a Flo gauge.
It doesn’t need to be any more scientific than that.

I suppose I should've mentioned the IBC would be outside and piped through a wall to my sprayer fill bay, so the IBC gauge is impractical. 20l can seems the most wallet friendly option.
@Longneck what type of flow gauge? I assume the cheaper impeller type ones wouldn't work and I would have to go with a magnetic one?

Another dim question:
What connector would I need to take bulk molasses deliveries? I'm thinking about a steel tank, but the only suitable spot is quite inaccessible to get it in the top, so it would need to be piped. I think I saw 4" camlock mentioned somewhere?
