Q

What is a good fertilizer schedule?

Answer(s)

A

Fertilizer application frequency depends on the type of fertilizer, (slow-release, or quick) the soil type and grass type.  You should follow the manufacturer's label on the bag for a suggested application timing.  Less than recommended rates can be applied with adequate results unless the fertilizer contains an herbicide, fungicide or insecticide. If it contains any of these, then label rates must be applied or you will have poor control of pests.
