    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.

    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.
