This liquid nitrogen calculator takes the guess work out of everything. Simply plug in the nitrogen percentage, weight of the liquid fertilizer, and total pounds of nitrogen you want to apply into our liquid nitrogen calculator and we show you exactly how many ounces to apply.
To do the math on how to calculate the amount of nitrogen in liquid fertilizer, let’s take CoROn 18-3-6 Plus 0.5% as an example. Say I want to spoon feed at 1/2 pound of Nitrogen per 1,000 ft². I plug in 18 in the first box, 10.67 in the second box, and 0.5 in the third box. I click “calculate” and I get 33.32 ounces. So I now know I need about 1 quart of this fertilizer to get 1/2 pound on N per 1,000 ft².
The key to a healthy lawn is first getting a soil test, then applying the fertilizers at the proper rates to ensure that your nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels are where they need to be. These macronutrients are the three numbers located on the front of your liquid fertilizer bottles.
Note: you may also use this liquid nitrogen fertilizer calculator for both phosphorus and potassium, too!
