Correcting a nitrogen deficiency in green beans

Our green beans were beginning to turn yellow, meaning we have a nutritional deficiency.   Referring to the MGC book on page 147, I see that a general yellowing of the entire plant is a nitrogen deficiency.  The book calls for a correction of 1/2 ounce per linear foot of nitrogen to be added.  

Urea is available locally, 46-0-0, so we will use it.
