1. Organic Applications In organic operations, it is recommended that all application rates be increased 100% of traditional applications for conventionally grown crops. (Conventional rate of 1 gallon per acre will increase to 2 gallons per acre for organic crop).

This increase is recommended because the build‐up of soil nutrients in organic fields is typically significantly less than that found in conventionally fertilized fields. Additionally, organic fertilizer products tend to have a slow release of nutrients compared to that of chemical fertilizers. Number and frequency of applications may also have to be increased for the same reasons.
