No it doesn't...

Springtime is for the growth spurt of roots, NOT greenery,, with stored CARBS as the energy source, not N... even low N...
Beside OM in the Spring is not going to be active anyways,,, so why would we start messing with the turf just as soon as the grass is waking up from Winter...
So it is NOT very beneficial,,, unless there is something in the following article that the OSU didn't get quite right...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
