Abstract/Contents:Reminds readers that fall fertilization is only a small part of a good annual fertilization program. Describes objectives of late fall fertilization (maintaining turf color through the fall, and promotion of rapid recovery from summer stress). Discusses agronomic benefits, direct and indirect, of late fall applied fertilizer (enhanced late fall and winter rooting, early spring green-up, decreased summer weed problems, reduced incidence of spring diseases, and enhanced drought resistance). Also explains economic benefits of late fall applied fertilizer (reduced costs in the spring). Presents potential problems of late fertilization (increased thatch, loss in winter hardiness, and possible pollution due to nitrate leaching). Suggests proper timing for fall nitrogen applications, focusing on common dates used in New England. Lists possible nitrogen sources; includes a table detailing the properties and suitability of various nitrogen sources for late fall fertilization. Provides general guidelines for fall fertilization.
