    it depends on your fertilizer analysis and how many lbs of nitrogen you want to apply per thousand sq ft.

    all are at 1lb of N per M in a 50lb bag
    30-?-? will cover 15M aprox 3 bags per acre, @ 1lb of N per M
    32-?-? will cover 16M a little less than 3 bags per acre, @ 1lb of N per M
    34-?-? will cover 17M a little less than 3 bags per acre, @ 1lb of N per M
    there are aprox 44M in an acre
    M =1,000sqft
