Fertilizers on fields

Beem asked to work on a soccer field. It is Bermuda but over seeded in the fatt with rye. Which is sprayed out in spring.

What fertilizer is everyone using and when. I was thinking of 34-0-0 or 34-0-6 most of the year at 1.5 lb of n and one high in k in fall at 2 lbs k.

Any ideas or other analysis woul be a big help

Around here most field work is contracted out.

Problem with this portion of the site is that it is very specialized and the few people that come here seem to lose interest fast due to the inactivity.

grassmasters, I cant help as I dont know warm season other than to say, it really isnt not a far leap from the work you probably already do...sorry I cant help more..

How about a soil test to determine need?
