    Saw some a few weeks ago, especially with the weather when it turned cooler and warmer. I would say .5 # N/K will help, you may want to bump a little more than than to push it out, especially if you think all of your N is gone. We put down about .8 #N/K in the first round with 50% slow, so things here still look good, but I have seen it esp in lawns that are not fertilized this spring and poorly drained / shady / wet.

    Good luck!
