I generally put a small handful of bone meal in each planting hole,
mainly to control blossom end rot. On land that had not been
fertilized for recent previous crops, I will work in about 500 lb/ac of
16-16-16 or similar pre-plant.
After they recover from transplant shock, I put 1/6-1/8 cup of 16-16-16
half way between plants. A few weeks later, the same amount of 46-0-0
or 33-0-0 or 21-0-0. And maybe (or maybe not) more nitrogen a few
weeks later. It seems almost impossible to give hybrids too much
Willie, ONWARD! Through the fog!
