    I was given a few bags of this soybean fertilizer. Can I use it as a starter fert for a slice seed job on my own yard. Will the high levels of potassium hurt anything? How soon before reseeding should I put it down.

    Would'nt be my first choice for a starter, but there are many ways to skin a cat.
  3. High levels of k would help, must be sop, and I would imange they are if fert is a soybean fertilizer!

    Put it down at a half pound of P and K. K can burn pretty easily especially if the turf is drought stressed and not irrigated. Its fine at a pound or more but not till later in the season.

    Free is good.
  5. a lb/m of sop/m will not burn cool season turf, even if sa.5lb/m of n is included
