    I have some 20-27-5
    0-0-50 Sulfate of Potash
    40 lbs of lime

    Small area 1200. We sprayed with ghylsophate and will powerake and then overseeding with bluegrass

    Could anyone recommend a good fert combo. I would like to apply half before I power rake. I would hope the poweraking would help incorporate into soil, and the apply the rest after I got down the seed .

    Might be a good idea to use 70/30 blue/rye...the blue will always be dominant and the rye will look great down to some really cold temps.

    Fall 46,

    Looks like your soil test is pretty darn good!

    All you need is some lime before planting.

    You could use your higher P as a starter and then follow up with the higher N when the lawn is established.

    Good Luck!

    You only need about 5 pounds of the 20-27-5 and maybe a couple pounds of the 0-0-50. I would save the 29-0-4 for next year. Be careful about the phosphorus restrictions there in Minnesota. You can use it only for new establishments, so you may want to load on a 0-46-0 now since you won't be able to next year. You only need to apply 5 pounds of the lime as well. Good luck.
