    Slow release. No one can tell you exactly without a soil test.

    I would agree with the slow release but would also add frequent smaller feedings as I believe that Bermuda responds favorably to having the food source available consistently.

    34-0-0 works pretty good.

    At 1/2lb per k. Unless you like mowing 3 times week. :usflag:

    Depends on how much you put on it, could kill it.

    Heck yes, with this heat, add overwatering and too much N. All it does is make excess top growth. :usflag:
