That is exactly the opposite
of what the idea of burning up stored carbs in the Spring is all about... you are promoting the burning up of stored carbs becuz you want to force the plant to green up earlier than the environmental factors say so...
What is being said here is that we need to allow the plant to do what the life processes of the plant were designed to do... we don't improve the health of any living thing by imposing unnatural activities through the stages of its life cycle... the point being made is that using N to force early greenup is the same as using steriods to enhance performancein the moment
What happens to the bones and other bodily function to those who divert from the natural processes of healthy living and take steriods instead???
If it is too cold for KBG to greenup, then it's too cold... if N forces it unnaturally, then that is by definition unhealthy
