Use a mostly or all mineral fert and have the turf utilize everything it can before freeze up. Screw the carryover effect in essence.
My thinking is toward the latter. Anyone use 46-0-0 100% UFLEXX for their fall app? Results?
I just applied 26-0-13 (last about 10 to 12 weeks) and will apply urea (not poly coated etc) after growth stops but still green (around thanksgiving time)...I do not use Lesco anymore since they prices suck.
