    Agroband

    Going to use one for the first time soon, just wondering what sort of quantities people are putting down the spout, can you put it all down in one go, or do you broadcast additonal fert over all. Have some kieserite to spread on, then was going to put 6cwt? 17.6.24 down spout then top with AN at emergence.

    Get it on, quite happily put 10cwts of 15 22 15 down the spout at planting, you should be able to cut back a bit on your usual rates though.

    Indexes are usually 2s or 3s, we use the high p stuff on salads, not at 10cwt's though, using a 14-10-21 on maincrop.
    If you've not used an agroband before you can probably reduce your rates by at least 1cwt/acre and probably more compared to broadcast.
