Abstract/Contents:"This is the time of year when poor turfed areas should be repaired. The soil on bare spots can be loosened by raking or spiking, seed sown, and fertilizer applied early in September. If turf grasses are present but in a thin stand, it is usually found to be more economical to fertilize liberally with a high nitrogen fertilizer than to reseed. If fertilizer is applied early in September it will give the turf grasses a chance to take advantage of the more ideal growing conditions during the fall months in the absence of severe competition from weeds. However, if the turf is heavily infested with crabgrass, the fertilizer should not be applied until after the crabgrass has been checked either by cold weather or by chemical treatment."
