Spring fertilizer application

  After a couple of warm days our pecan trees have finally started to wake up. With the first signs of bud break, we decided to make  our regular springtime application of nitrogen and potassium today (photo above). We applied 150 lbs/acre Urea and 100 lbs./acre Potash. In elemental form that equals 69 lbs/acre N and 60 lbs/acre K.  Total cost of the application including spreader rent was $60.97/acre.
