Can't remember how this works or how to split out NH3 between me and our farm split, I may be overthinking this?!!?!?!
I was applying at my farm, then had some left when I went to my other farm (that is a 50/50) split. When I got done at my place the tank had 55% left in it. I used the rest at the 50/50 farm. The scale ticket weight was 4240# of product. How many pounds of product goes to me vs the 50/50 farm?
1. My first thought was take 55% of 4240 and that goes to the 50/50 farm, but then I thought....
2. Since the tank was at 85% when we started, and I used from 85% down to 55%, My 50/50 farm should take 64.7% (55/85 = .647) of the scale ticket weight to get my pounds accurate.
