Micros are routine for me because of difficult soil conditions. If they are difficult enough not even excessive N gets grass to react as it normally would. One of my best customers related how she would buy and apply a 4 X rate of 30-2-4 50 slow release. That gross overfeeding would only color up the grass for a few weeks. I corrected base ratios and pH. over this past year. Micronutrients were part of the monthly application as well. Grass now needs mowing at least twice a week. This is on reel cut bermuda. 1/2 acre worth. I know there is a problem when more than a lb of N fails to get a reaction out of the grass. Things are dialed in when even 1/4" gets a response.
