Abstract/Contents:Discusses fall fertilization timing, suggesting that "contrary to the long-held belief that nitrogen applied while the grass is not growing will increase root growth, the PSU [Penn State University] researchers found the best fall N [nitrogen] timing was actually 15 days before the first hard frost." Provides a brief list detailing the benefits of fertilizing early in the fall. Addresses the presence of soil potassium, warning that "the more potassium in the leaf, the faster gray snow mold progresses."
