Abstract/Contents:SUMMARY: "Fall fertilization is a management practice based on the physiological responses of cool season turfgrasses to the declining air and soil temperatures of fall. The potential benefits are many and have been confirmed by researchers in various locations throughout the region of cool season grasses. The practice is, however, not conducive to maintaining high Poa annua densities in turf. To realize the full benefits of fall fertilization, guidelines for the practice need to be carefully observed. The key guidelines are: 1) The fertilizer is applied at a time such that the N is not readily available to the turfgrass until mean daily air temperatures have declined to 50 F or less. 2) The rate of N application is in the range of 1.0 to 1.5 lb/M (45 to 65 lb/A). This rate should include any N applied once the grass is dormant. 3) Spring N application is delayed as long as possible and preferably until mid-May or later. 4) Application of P and K with the fall N is advisable unless soil tests indicate no need for these nutrients."
