Andersons 19-0-6 question??

Aerated my personal lawn today and was wondering if it would be ok to put down a light ap of Andersons 19-0-6 again? I put it down about 4 or 5 weeks ago and kind of just want to get rid of the rest of it. Are there any benefits to this? It is supposed to rain tonight and I thought it might be a good time.
Dont want to burn up my lawn! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

what % slow release N is in that stuff? I doubt you would burn your lawn if you put down like 1/2 rate app, but need to know more about the fert.

How much slow release like DA said? Are you planning on putting down another fert app before june after this one? IMHO I would hold off on that fert app till may and make it your last fert app till august unless you plan on spoon feeding your lawn. If your going to use that fertilizer it may be smarter to use that in mid may do to the higher potassium level. Potassium helps the plants with transferring of water across membranes and it also helps the plant cope with heat and cold tolerence. So it would be reasonable to make that your last application to prepare it for the spring. Like DA said I would only apply like .25lb of it. In the spring time grass is already growing insane even without fertilization because they are trying reproduce, in this case produce a seed head. Without fert. you already have to mow your lawn 2 times a week basically, so their is no real reason to push the fert in spring. Also another reason is you want to build a root structure going into summer. With multiple fert apps all your doing is pushinbg the top growth, using up the carb reserves in the plants and stunting the root growth. On my lawn I only do 2 fert apps one in beginning of april .25lbs/1000 and another in mid may .25lbs/1000. Then in summer time i go to spoon feeding with milorganite about .1lbs/1000
