i think i know the answer, lets see if anyone else does. if a 50 lb bag of fertilizer , rated to treat 12,500 sq ft of turf, has the numbers 20-10-10 on it, how many lbs of nitrogen per k is being applied?

50*20%=10lbs
10/12.5=.8lbsN per 1k

Interesting how lars got there. I didn't think of it that way.

I believe both are right though?
