Take the recommended amount of product needed, for example, a laboratory says you need 3.1 pounds of nitrogen First find out the percentage of Nitrogen in the product you plan to use Ammonium Sulfate is 21-0-0
Divide the recommended amount by the 21% in the product 3.1 ÷ .21 = 14.761 pounds of product needs to be used
Acres to 1000sqft. If a product is recommended by the acre to find the amount for 1000 sqft…
An acre is 43560 sq ft divide it by 43.56 for the rate per 1000 square feet.
If 120 pounds is used for 1-acre divide 120 by 43.56 = 2.75 pounds for 1000 sqft
To get one inch of water ‘acre (43,560 sq ft) = 27,000 gallons 1,000 sq ft = 620 gallons 100 sq ft = 62 gallons 10 sq ft = 6.2 gallons 1.9q ft = 2.5 quarts
