The fall lawn fertilization strategy is important. This is when the largest amount of Nitrogen is applied. Grass is switching from leaf growth production to root growth and carbohydrate storage. This will continue until the soil temperatures reach into the 30’s. The same amount of photosynthesis is going on, but instead of blade growth, it is focusing more on root growth and energy storage. The grass is able to handle higher levels of Nitrogen than it could earlier in the year.
