Spanish term or phrase: fertilización al voleo
Agriculture again. They speak of "fertilización al voleo" as a valid alternative in some cases to "aplicaciones en bandas" (as in rows of crops).

Thanks in advance.

aerial fertilization


Explanation:
I have traslated numerous agricultural brochures where this term appears in English, therefore, I suggest you use it because it's almost impossible to find or define by merely looking up both words "voleo" for instance and making a phrase that does not exist.

Good luck.

broadcast fertilization


Explanation:
To broadcast = to sow [seed OR fertilizer pellets, etc.)in all directions by scattering.

Yes, broadcast fertilization seems widely used.

EXAMPLES (Internet) :
Broadcast fertilization is not recommended in community watersheds with high natural nutrient levels in streams or lakes. (Canada)

Broadcast fertilization of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) is a popular and low-cost fertilizer application method. A band application theoretically could further increase yield of row crops or reduce the optimum fertilization rate under some conditions. (Iowa, USA; American Society of Agronomy)

One does find "Aerial broadcast fertilization" (Forestry, for example)
It is one SPECIFIC type of broadcast fertilization (see: Aerial and Other Broadcast Methods, on the Net).

Fertilization. The aerial or ground (broadcast) application of fertilizer to selected grass slopes was determined to be the most applicable method to provide additional forage on selected areas.

In others contexts, broadcast and aerial applications differ:
Herbicides may be applied by injection or spot gun treatment or individual stems, mist blowing, aerial application or broadcast pellet application.

Explanation:
Once again, I think all the above answerers are on the right track, but coming from a farming family this is what I'd probably use. Again, good luck to you!
