Multi-K = Potassium nitrate (13% N and 46% K20).
AN = Ammonium Nitrate (34%N).
SSP = Single Super Phosphate (19%P2O5).

The total amount of  Ammonium Nitrate should be split into two applications, the first dressing being given in late May and the second four weeks later. For early-maturing varieties the total amount of nitrogen should be split into three applications: one-third in March, one-third in April and one-third in late May.

The recommended amounts of  P and K should be applied in single applications.
