To determine the amount of Nitrogen to apply: Step 1: Take 160 lbs (desired amount) ÷ 43,560 (square feet in an acre) = 0.0037. Step 2: Multiply the square feet of your row per square feet by 0.0037. Example: A 100′ row that is 3 feet wide is 300 square ft X 0.0037 = 1.11 lbs of Nitrogen needed. Step 4: Divide the amount of Nitrogen needed by the N formulation of the fertilizer you are using. Example 1.11 ÷ .21 (21% ammonium sulfate) = 5.3 lbs. This is the amount of fertilizer that would need to be applied to each 300 sq ft of onion area if there was no N in the soil analysis. Fertilizer packages are labeled with three numbers that are percentages. The first indicates the percent actual nitrogen (N), the second, the oxide form of phosphorus (P2O5), and the third, the oxide form of potassium (K2O). Ammonium Sulfate is labeled as a 21-0-0 fertilizer so to get 1 lb of Nitrogen in any space you will need to apply 5 lbs of dry product since 5 lbs X 21% = 1.05 units of Nitrogen.
