I do not use it in the summer when it is hot. I then use a combination of Urea Triazone and my U fertilizers. If you don't have irrigation you need to dilute the fertilizer and apply less.
I assume you mean "salt index" or "osmolality index" and not "salt content" as it's unlikely AMS or other N sources would contain any negligible amounts of sodium chloride or other chlorides.
