Question:"We are in the midst of the tobacco section, and it frequently happens that we can get damaged tobacco at a small cost to put on our bluegrass. I have the opinion that tobacco affords too much potash and would therefore not be desirable for turfs. Have you had any experience with tobacco as a fertilizer on bluegrass?"
Source of Question:Kentucky
Answer/Response:"Tobacco analyzes from 1 to 5 per cent nitrogen and from .5 to 10 per cent potash. Therefore, its value for the fertilizing of bluegrass is variable, depending entirely on the analysis. If your particular lot happens to be one which runs low in nitrogen and high in potash, it should not be so good for grass fertilizing. On the other hand, if it is the reverse, being high in nitrogen and low in potash, it should be entirely satisfactory."
Keywords:TIC Keywords: Fertilizer evaluation; Poa pratensis; Tobacco stalks
