Default Fertilizers ratio

This still hard for me: If I mix 10lb of 6-2-0 with 1lb 0-0-60 or 9lb of 6-2-0 with 1lb 0-0-60, what will come out as final product?

you are going to have to break out your pencil and paper to figure what the changed ration is. those numbers are percentage of N-P-K in each bag using the bag's total weight, so if your ration is 5-5-5 in a forty pound bag then for each eight pounds of fertilizer you have one pound of each of these chemicals, the rest of it is filler on in the case of sulfur a soil acidifier. if you use another ratio you will need that pencil and paper to figure out how many pounds of fertilizer you need to give you one pound of each chemical. Or what percentage of any of the chemicals are in each pound out of that bag and hope the mix is well distributed.

mix 10lb of 6-2-0 with 1lb 0-0-60

= 11 Lbs of 5.45 - 1.82 - 5.45

mix 9lb of 6-2-0 with 1lb 0-0-60

= 10 Lbs of 5.4 - 1.8 - 6.0
