Annual Grasses are different than Perennial grasses...

Lawn care is about pounds of NPK per 1000 sq.ft. of lawn... the N generally runs, 0.25#/k to 1.0#/k at various apps...

It was agricultural literature that I was reading that talked about a study as to how much N is lost in the cool soils/weather, that the plants never get to use...
I suppose those new CO studies will justify TGCL putting their 7th app on the snow B4 Christmas...

Anyways, here is one of the simplest articles about how fertilizer works in the soils for the life cycle of cool season grasses...

it is from Ohio and their Nov. is like our Oct... That distinction is important depending on your area and climate...

The focus is on Fall Fertilization, but it does a fairly good job on Expressing how Spring is affected and Why it is affected... The reason Why is always the most important aspect of the article...
