Chart is for planters equipped with contact drive. Check tires for correct operating pressure. Chart based on
average wheel slippage and liquid viscosities.
Measure and weigh one gallon of actual fertilizer solution to determine exact application rate. Chart calculated
based on a solution weighing ten pounds per gallon.
NOTE: Fertilizer application rates can vary from weights calculated in above chart. Make field checks to be
sure you are applying fertilizer at desired rate.
NOTE: Periodically check flow to all rows. Desired rate is delivered to remaining rows keeping total application
rate at desired rate if one or more lines are plugged.
To check exact number of gallons your fertilizer attachment delivers on a 30" row spacing:
1. Remove hose from one fertilizer opener and insert it into a collection container secured to planter frame.
2. Engage fertilizer attachment and drive forward for 174'.
3. Measure fluid ounces caught in container and multiply by 100. Divide that by 128. Result is gallons of fertilizer
delivered per acre when planting in 30" rows.
4. Rinse collection container and repeat test on other rows if necessary.
