    I am wondering is it ok to cut and fertilize, when they are calling for mix snow/rain the next day.

    if it is still growing cut away. I went and did a fall clean up at a house today, and I couldn't believe the growth that is still going on

    It's another one of those years. No one is finishing up with their cleanups, the ground is soft, the grass is still growing, it's continuing wet conditions, etc....

    when you study and take the test to be certified to apply fertilizer, you will learn the answers to those questions...

    This describes exactly what it's like here in southern England right now. We've had the wettest, warmest autumn [that's fall to you guys] for years and it's only in the past few days that we've had frost overnight. Yes we're still mowing to get the last few jobs finished for the season. However the wind's now gone round to the north and they are forecasting a few flakes of snow blowing in from northern Europe before the weekend.
    Then we can put our feet up for a while.

    I guess you did not get the memo? You are a teacher now at this free school, after you and I and lots of others pay and go to class and get certified we come on here and share all the knowlege that was taught to us and teach it for free... It's all good. :D

    sicnj, you are in NJ you don't need a lic. to apply fertilizer only. I have my customers on a full schedule and my last fert app was October 15th with 16-5-9. I have seen other LCO's applying ferts just last week but I don't know there specific program. If you use ferts from a reputable supplier they can help you with any specific questions, especially turf farms that sell what they use.
