Question:Our turf is composed chiefly of bluegrass with a little fescue and a litte clover. The soil is a clay subsoil with a clay loam surface of about 2 or 3 inches. We would appreciate your advice as to the proper fertilizer to apply.

Answer/Response:Since your turf consists chiefly of bluegrass with not much clover and fescue, it is probable that you will obtain best results by applying some fertilizer high in nitrogen and with perhaps half as much phosphoric acid. A mixed fertilizer such as a 10-5-2, 8-4-2 or a similar combination should give you entirely satisfactory results. It would be well to apply such a fertilizer as early in the spring as possible. If you have crabtrass do not apply fertilizer after the end of April. In case fertilizer cannot be applied in early spring, wait until early fall.
