fertilizing corn

big hello to everyone, we grow corn in venezuela, I was wondering how you all in the states manage the fertilizer applications . Down here we usually apply 600 pounds of a dry Npk mix at planting and another 400 pounds of N K at a later time usually a month after planting . thanks for any comments or input.

Re: fertilizing corn

sounds pretty steep and expensive too. 400 pounds of N is 112 units which is about all you need to raise a good corn crop. what kind of weather do you get. Rainfall?? etc. the more specific you are with me on your conditions down there the more info I can give you that is prudent to your situation. what are the fertilizer blends???

Re: fertilizing corn

Venezuela is Metric, which means those are lbs/ha, not lbs/ac, right?

If so, 1ha = 2.47ac
