Question:We would appreciate your recommendation as to what is generally considered to be the best turf fertilizer. We know that this is difficult to make without a soil analysis for the specific soil in question. I might say that we have a clay loam soil with an underlie of limestone. The turf is 10 years old, and consists of a mixture of Kentucky bluegrass and redtop.

Keywords:TIC Keywords: Fertilizer recommendations; NPK fertilizers
Answer/Response:For turf fertilizing we generally find that best results are obtained by using a fertilizer such as a 12-6-4, 10-5-3 or a similar combination containing twice as much nitrogen as phosphorus, and a still smaller amount of potash. The best fertilizer is one which will provide the most plant food in approximately the proportions mentioned above for a given expenditure. Sometimes there are decided variations in soils which make it necessary to resort to a certain modifications of the preceding recommendation.
