Application Schedule

I live in South East Tennessee I am trying to figure out a good fertilization regiment to offer to my customers next year. Is there anyone on here that can give me a tips on how many applications, how to space them out, and what type of fert is best. I've never done anything like this before so it is completely new. Thanks!

Trade secrets, proprietary information. We won't do your homework for you. However, if you read a few hundred posts on this site--it should give you an idea.

Also talk to the salesman at your fert dealer; take him out for coffee, he will have ideas and products to suggest.

If all else fails, look through the information from your nearest agricultural college...or...attend a winter turf conference at your nearest turfgrass association.

Don't forget to get licensed and insured.

Some may, but I don't put much stock in what the salesmen have to say. I've heard and have been given plenty of wrong information from salesman.

Idk if Tennessee or Kentucky have a turf program? If not I use NC State and Clemson's turf websites a lot.Both give fert recommendations and schedules and info on pests and control as well. What type of grass are you dealing with? You'll want to base your program on how many pounds of N your grass requires per year and apply throughout the growing season.

Most grasses around here are your Bermuda and tall fescue. Most high end use tall fescue ( cultivars vary)
