You also need an abundance of Nitrogen. Go with a fertilizer with a Nitrogen component around 30. Around 1 lb of N per 1,000 sq ft.

If you want to fert your Bermuda use Ammonium Sulfate for your nitrogen source. The "AS" source works fantastic with Bermuda much bettrer than standard Urea. Apply a 1lb per thousand in our region on Sportsturf we nail it every 4 weeks at a pound. Turf looks great and recovers well due to traffic and maintenance.

Urea is the cheapest form of Nitrogen. Yes Ammonium Sulfate will make any turf greener than Urea. U of F did a study on warm season turf and Ammonium won hands down.

I heard a story about a guy who took care of a polo field and pull down a pound a week during the polo season. Man that is a lot of "N"
