Not sure have never tried it. I have a 25 gal sprayer on my mule so would be easier than spreading granual.
Just now starting research. Have seen some products out there that can be had for about $45 an acre.
One thing that concerns me most say to spray when plants are 2-3" tall. Concerned if I run over my turnips at that stage would I kill them?
If you do, make sure your sprayer has viton seals.
Foliar liquid applications of fertilizer I always thought of as a quick fix. SCU or IBDU granular fertilizers will give you some timed release and are a lot more forgiving in terms of application rate. And certainly less messy.
At $45/ac and only having a utv sprayer, I would go with granular fertilizer. You could put a decent rate of dry fertilizer for about the same cost especially for a food plot. A lot of co ops have gas power spreaders that can be pulled with truck or utv and no tractor is needed. With these temps, I would sure want to make sure a rain is not far away or protect the nitrogen with a stabilizer to keep from volatilization.
I have a nice tractor so that not an issue. Probably will fertilize late summer early fall. Concerned about pump seals now so will probably stay with granular. I can generally catch a clearance end of summer at WM
