Winter Applications

Following my theory that you should always apply according to soil tests, I am spreading trip 19 on some lawns and 5-10-31 10%FE on others....

What are you guys spreading?

Soil testing indicated a few of my bermuda clients were very low in phosphorus. These were accounts I just started with in the past few months.

Since the bermuda is now dormant, I have applied 18-46-0 DAP to boost the phosphorus in preparation for next Spring. The N right now serves no purpose, however.

Poa annua can be a big problem in this area, so in late January some will get an application of simazine.
