Conversion Factors 

It seems that we are always searching for the right measure of something.  We always need to convert from the information on a given label to a measuring device that we have on the shelf.  Well, below is a listing of the most common conversions.  As always, more of something is not generally better. Mix all chemicals according to the manufacturers recommendation.

    1 gal               6 T                  2 T  To determine parts per million(ppm) of an element in  a fertilizer, simply multiply the percent of that element  by 75. The answer will be the ppm of the element per  ounce of the fertilizer in 100 gallons of water.  8".......8-3/16 x 4 x 6-3/4....................9

   Example: 20-10-20 contains 20% Nitrogen. 20%  multiplied by 75 is 15, which is the ppm of Nitrogen in  one ounce of 20-10-20 per 100 gallons of water.  Therefore, if 200ppm N is desired, divide 200 by 15 =  13.3 oz of 20-10-20 are required to produce a 200  ppm  N solution in 100 gals of water.  8".........7-1/2 x 4-7/8..4-1/16............11

   4 lbs                3 T                 1 t ppm desired divided by 75 divided by the decimal  expression of nutrient desired = oz of fertilizer to use  in 100gals of water.  806……..1-1/2 x 2-3/8 x 2-1/4...........6

 100 lbs         2-1/4 lbs           1/4 lb  Example: How much 20-10-20 fertilizer should you  use to obtain a 200 ppm Nitrogen Solution?  
 200 lbs         4- 1/2 lbs          1/2 lb Note :  Pot dimensions and yield figures are approximations only !
200ppm divided by 75
                   .20        =13.3 oz/100gals water
