I agree that it will be green in the Spring, because there may be some moisture added to the soil over the next 5 months and the ET is way down... but that doesn't prove that N added now does anything for the turf now...

In fact, my August applications are still sitting on the ground to a large extent,,, and I would be considered a 'ripoff' by charging clients for another .75 lbs of N...
You think that the seriousness of this drought situation doesn't apply to you...

You would do well to read this entire article so that you can make sense of what you are seeing as a result of your barren land applications...
