Augers for dry fertilizer
Low-, regular-, and high-rate feed augers are available to meter fertilizer in the quantity required.
 
For 76.2-cm (30-in.) rows, the approximate rate of application is as follows:
 
 Low-rate augers  Regular-rate augers   High-rate augers  
 52.7 to 269 kg/ha (47 to 240 lb/acre)  105.4 to 533.5 kg/ha (94 to 476 lb/acre)  183.8 to 803.7 kg/ha (164 to 717 lb/acre)
  
For 101.6 (40-in.) rows, the approximate rate of application is as follows:
 
 Low-rate augers  Regular-rate augers   High-rate augers  
 41.5 to 208.5 kg/ha (37 to 186 lb/acre)  82.9 to 418.1 kg/ha (74 to 373 lb/acre)  124.4 to 626.6 kg/ha (111 to 559 lb/acre)
 
NOTES:
  1. Larger amounts will be applied to narrower row spacings and smaller amounts will be applied to wider row spacings. 
  2. Weight metered may vary from that indicated because the fertilizer attachment will meter by volume, not by weight, and because of differences in fertilizer. 
  3. Multiples of the augers are required for 8-row, 12-row, and 16-row applications.
