read the label, it usually tell you the sq footage per bag. on straight (lesco)fert, non combo products, a fert like 15-5-15 is figured at 100 lbs measurements. so as it is sold in 50 lbs bags cut it in half. this is all based on 1 lb of N per 1000 sq ft
So:
15-5-15 covers 7500 sq ft
16-4-8 covers 8000 sq ft
24-2-11 covers 12000 sq ft
per bag

CHECK OUT A LABEL

http://lesco.johndeerelandscapes.com...ource&ID=10918

once you know that 15 / 2 is 7500 sq ft
divide 50(lbs) / 7.5 = 6.7 lbs of fert per 1000
