thinking about spraying my brassica and clover plots with liquid fertilizer in a few weeks rather than broadcasting granular. anyone have any experiences with it? good or bad? what kind did you use?

Have you gotten a soil test to tell you what you need? With the clover, if inoculated you may not need any fertilizer. I have used liquid on oats and winter peas. Put it out pre-emerge and disc it in with the seed and then post-emerge right before a rain. Someone who farms for a living might have different insight.

Back when I farmed a lot more, I used liquid fertilizer, mixed with Grazon P&D, on my coastal. Had great results with it.

I have used TSC generic liquid pasture fertilizer. Perks plants up quick.

Plants have roots for a reason, I would not recommend a foliar fertilizer.

Foliar fertilizer is pretty common, most plants will take in nutrients that way as well. However, majority of liquid fertilizer put of is probably not foliar in nature.

From what I've read, liquid fertilizers will give you a quick, noticeable short term result, but overall, it's a waste of money when compared to traditional fertilizer that improves the soil. The drawback to spreading the mix of NPK into your soil is that it takes 3 to six months to work, and depending on your soil, it might take several years to get it where you want it to grow your specific plants.

Common doesn't mean it works. It is common to find people who think guns should be banned too

OK, well put it this way. If it didn't work why would farmers spend millions each year using it? It has worked for me in the past quick well, not sure what experience you are basing your flawed claim on?

Well my job is doing ag research trials in soil fertility and chemistry. I have carried out quite a few trials that looked at foliar fertilizers so I am just basing my flawed claims on hard science.

We are talking liquid, you inserted foliar. I will stand by my claims, but agree that foliar must be used under a strict set of circumstances (temp humidity) to be effective.

Read the original post. He said spraying so hence the entire foliar discussion.

Negative. he asked about liquid fertilizer, he didn't imply foliar. He asked liquid vs granular. I give up. You are wearing me out with your nonsense.

Goodness. He said spraying, go back and read it. What do you think a foliar fertilizer is? Hint, it's a liquid sprayed on.

You can say it is nonsense all you want. I have put out fertilizer on thousands of research plots, taken several thousand soil samples, plant samples, and collected a 4" binder full of data this year alone looking at fertility across crops from wheat to corn to peanuts.

Nothing to arugue over. They both work, one has immediate effects that are short lived vs the other that has more long lasting effects that take longer to see.

the craziest oat plots we ever had came when we did it this way one year. There was a decent amount of rain, but I'm not exaggerating when I say our oats were pretty much knee high by Thanksgiving.
