fertilizing time with this weather??

How are you guys switching your schedule around with it still being in the 50s and were almost in April.? We are typically starting to spray urea this time of year. we aim to start that the first or second week of April. This time last year it was 75 deg daily. So are you all not spraying urea or just going to switch to slow release? just seeing what others are doing in my area. Im talking about Bermuda and zyosia lawns.

Covington? Where are you ? Is that in the Alsace-Lorraine area of France?
Do you mean that you have applied your crabgrass preventer already?

Its Covington GA. About 30 miles south of Atlanta. I do split apps of barricade. One in middle Jan and another in early to mid April and I also mix urea in with that app. But with this weather I'm not sure I'm king to be able to do that. Don't want to fertilize Bermuda when its still in the 50s some days.

Different area....but we are WAY far out from starting anything app-wise. Will be at least 3 weeks out, if not 4-5.
