    Hey Guys,

    I am in the trans zone Maryland. I just wanted to see what the highest amount of N you use for my area for summer apps. With the price of fert going up, I am looking a maybe going up just a little on N and still a little high on k.

    Thanks! Ed

    I like to stay below 1/2 lb per k with 30% slow release

    Thanks, I usually don't go above a 1/2lb per 1000 except for fall ferts. Last season I used a 13-3-10 with 2% FE from Andersons for my summer apps. They have a 15N that I might strike a deal with.
