What is the average weight per cubic foot of 46-00 and 11-52-00 fertilizers? Any good sites to explain the use of fertilizers? tia

i do most the fertilizer spreading on our farm and the 46-0-0 is always 48 density, or 48 lbs/cu. ft. im not sure what 11-52-0 is but around here we get dap as 18-46-0 and the density on that is going to be somewhere in the 65-70 lb/cu. ft range.

These weights can vary, I assume you have a density scale, for test weights of grain and weight per cu. ft. check it out for yourself.

This is from NDSU Fert. Guide;

46-00 45 # Density, lb/cubic foot.
0-0-60 65#
11-52-0 55#
18-46-0 55#

If you don't have one, get a density scale, and take the time to get yourself educated. Go to your county ext. agent and learn. That is what farming is all about.
