Whirly gig lawn spreader for half an acre seems easy? If you have heavy black soil maybe get by with 40 units. On half acre you are looking at roughly 50 lbs of urea. Or in a pinch two bags of lawn fertilizer (27-0-0).
Is bagged urea for lawn fertilizer not available in your area? A bag or two of 46-0-0 with a lawn spin spreader behind an ATV sounds like the easiest way by a wide margin for the OP to fertilize his sweet corn patch.
I’d probably go with a bag of urea and a bag of AMS, because our soils always need a little sulfur anyway.
