N response for cracked corn.

I put down cracked corn at 10 lbs per K about four weeks ago and am still waiting for a response. Do I need to bump my rate or is the response time greater for cracked corn compared to corn meal? I read in other posts that three weeks was time needed to see a response? BTW my Earthway evenspread spreader set wide open did a wonderful job putting down 10 lb per K with one pass for anybody who cares.

Could I get faster response time from Alfalfa pellets?

Thanks for any shared experiances.

Tom

I applied cracked corn 5 weeks ago at 10 lbs/1000 and I would say that I am pretty impressed with the results. Took about 3.5 weeks to see results. So far I am happy with my decision.Price was right also, much cheaper than Lesco.

Dishboy,

How much rain did you get after it was put down?

Stonewall, we have had lots of rain, plus I have irrigated. It has been cool and rainy here. It does appear that things are finally starting to wake up now[4+ weeks]. In all fairness my early spring fast acting N app was totally depleted starting this experiment so it will have to kick it in to catch up with my other lawns. This is my home lawn, Blue grass mix cut at 2.25

Thanks

Tom

My only experiment with cracked corn took 6+ weeks to show because we didn't have much if any rain. When we did, it finally started greening up and the St. Augustine is filling in the bad brown patch areas I've been fighting.

soil temps would have to be warm enough for microbes to break down crack corn meal

I am not sure what you mean by "burnt" and I guess centepede is a southern grass?

No but all the other birds and squirrels have a party, I am thinking that manure based organics may be a better choice.
