There's nothing left to say here, but that never stopped me! Triple 19 is easy to find. WalMart sells it. Lowes, Home Depot, your local coop and maybe even your grocery store. It seems like the uninitiated of the world are in love with 10 - 10 - 10. Need fertilizer? Ask for 10 -10 -10. Sounds cool and that's what dad always bought. It has a nice balance. Fertilizing? Balance just seems right. You might ask, why's he talking about 10 -10 -10? Well, when you blend the right amounts of potash, diammonium phosphate with a dash of urea you end up with 19 - 19 - 19 on the way to bagging 10 -10 - 10. Let's see. Start with 333 lbs of muriate of potash (0 - 0 - 60). Add 435 lbs of diammonium phosphate (18 - 46 - 0) and you get 200 lbs of P and 78 lbs of N. But, we need 200 lbs of N so well throw in 265 lbs of urea (46 - 0 - 0) which supplies 122 lbs of actual N. Total material pounds - 333 + 435 + 265 = 1,033 lbs. That's all we need to get 200 lbs of N, P, and K.

More math -- 200 divided by 1033 = 19%. Want 10 - 10 -10? Add 967 lbs of stuff not fertilizer! Or, lets forget the stuff and call it 19 - 19 - 19 (its actually the guaranteed analysis). And it's everywhere!! I know! Now you are going, huh?

But, it's Friday night and I ain't got nobody....
