New to this forum, but in the past I've looked up many things as a guest. I think some of you guys out there could help answers some questions i have stored up haha! I appreciate everyone's input and I thank you ahead of time.
I'm located in Central Illinois
For the past few months I've been clearing my N/E 1/2 acre hillside. Soil tests came back normal / great 80% shade. nothing deficient nor sufficient. So I've been in the market for some all around fertilizer to get my grounds ready when the leaves start to turn coming up.
I have 20 40lb bags of pelletized gypsum.already
Now I'm looking for nitrogen.. I know bloodmeal is good, but its so dang EXPENSIVE! I can't find any stores to get it in large quantities.. and for the amount i need (roughly 250lbs or more) the shipping is crazy to get it online.. anyone know of a place?
I can get a 46-0-0 on ebay but this just seems like over kill and could damage my farm..
so i'm to the point where a good 12-10-10 mix or something a like would do well... which leads me to my next question
Liquid or solid?
Anyone have experience with liquid additives?
The plan is to add all the additives the same day i plant so i still have time to get this figured out.
Once again, thanks for any and all information, if i get a chance ill post a pic for yall!
I agree with latt, adding fertilizer will probably cause more harm than good. Gypsum should be fine, I have had good luck with that. Remember, the more you do to the soil, the more disease you will likely have.
