Post by Vaikis »

I have put KBG seeds and waiting for outcome, when its best time to start with fertilization using bigger amount of N and how much? Soil already got some starter with 6-20-30.

Normally you can start fertilizing after a couple of mows, but usually low application rates produce the best results in the beginning...similar to the rates used in the Fall blitz.
Front: Northern mix - mostly TTTF, KBG, TTPR. Back: Firecracker and Bullseye TTTF with America, Rugby 2, Bewitched KBG. Upper Side: Mostly TTPR, KBG. Lower Side: similar to front. Low-input: TF/FF, KBG, PR. Always seeding somewhere or fighting Triv.
