Starter fertilizer is most beneficial when soils are low in phosphorus or during/right after seeding. This can be applied early spring or late fall, regardless of soil fertility. Small amount of fertilizer applied near the seed to meet the demands of the seedling for readily available nutrients until the plant’s root system develops. They also enhance the development of the emerging seedling. Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are the key nutrient components in starter fertilizers. Phosphorus promotes vigorous root growth. In general, using a fertilizer stater when planting seed is ideal. Nebraska soils are rarely low in phosphorus, but turfgrass seedlings do benefit from a starter fertilizer high in phosphorus at seeding.

Applied anytime to turf. Apply during aeration, with seed or when phosphorus levels are low.
For lawns low in phosphorus: Apply 3-6 pound per 1000 square feet depending on soil test results.
For lawns being aerated and seeded, once the area is prepared, apply a starter fertilizer totaling 1 to 1.5 lbs Phorphorus/1,000 sq.ft.
All Fertilizer should be watered in for best results
