Spring Fertilizer with Preemerge Application

Yes it is that time a year already!  We are currently in the process of applying our spring preemerge and fertilizer application to the course.  The product of choice this year is a 28-0-15 blend spread at a 300#/acre rate.  The ideal time to apply a preemerge is prior to weed seed germination and as always with preemerge it is better to be a little early than late.  The majority of nutrients in the bag are in a 'controlled release' form that will be released based on plant needs.  Controlled release products protect our environment by reducing nutrient runoff and keeps the fertilizer in the soil to be used by the plant when it is needed.
