What is the application rate for Chandler Soil?

In general, we recommend applying 12 to 16 ounces per acre in most fields. Use 16 ounces per acre if the soil is very light, poorly drained or compacted. After using the product for at least three years, some of our users drop back to 10 to 12 ounces per acre and have good results. Also, it is possible to apply the product in a band over the row or in the seed furrow with a planter, and the recommended application rate in these cases is 8 to 10 ounces per acre.

The table below lists the range of application rates and the associated per-acre cost. These cost values are rounded to the nearest $0.25 and are based on purchases of 2.5 gallon jugs at our regular retail price. These costs will be lower if purchased in larger volumes (30 gallon drums) or ordered under our early-season discount programs in the fall (September and October) or winter (December through March).

Application Rate Acres per gallon Cost per acre
8 ounces 16.0 acres $5.75 per acre
10 ounces 12.8 acres $7.25 per acre
12 ounces 10.7 acres $8.75 per acre
14 ounces 9.1 acres $10.25 per acre
16 ounces 8.0 acres $11.75 per acre
