When you guys overseed, do you still put down starter fert or just go with reg. fert.
Thanks Ja Red
starter 10 days after seeding.
do you do that a newly seeded lawn too?
Starter fert. Too much N will cause burn. If they're on a program and I'm repairing drought stress I don't use any.
just curious as to why you wait 10 days for starter fert?
You can apply a starter fert at the time of seeding.
This is the case when your starter fert has a low percentage of water soluable Nitrogen. Too much WSN can lower your germination rate.
Diammonium Phosphate (18-46-0) is a good choice for starter since you can apply a high amount of Phosphorous with a low salt index.
i like to apply it just as the seed starts . it seems to last longer in the soil.
starter fert i think its 12-36-6 or something like that. 10 days after germ. i hit it with .5 lbs urea per 1k.
How about best way to overseed. just a small areas scattered through the lawn.....
any help on that one?
