The article is essentially saying that the early app of NPK stimulates the shoot growth to an unhealthy extent that burns up energy reserves in the plant... also indicates that this occurs at the expense of the root development that is the normal healthy activity of the plant,,, at this time of the year...

So in a nutshell,,, the Early Spring app of fert and pre-m results in a double-whammy,,, that only hurts the chances of a strong root system...
Wait a couple of mowings and it works out fine...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
