    Should I go ahead soon put down a high nitrogen application on a football field to give it a early green up? Is this a good idea or not? Thanks for any advice.

    If your main goal is just an early green up, try using a slow release fertilizer with 5-6% iron (fe) in it. It will give you the early green up without to much growth.
     
  3. generally agree with above, but don't stimulate until after the last killing frost

    not getting much help

    You guys aren't getting much help?? It's supposed to be -10 here tonight, and I'm only 30 miles north of St. Paul.

    I figure that when it hits 40 (hopefully on Tuesday, first time since November) that TG/GL will be out putting down the first round of pre-m. :D
