Fact Sheet:

For pastures not intensively grazed, apply 150 to 200 pounds nitrogen per acre. For intensively grazed pastures apply 200 to 250 pounds nitrogen per acre. Apply phosphate (P2O5) and potash (K2O) as recommended above. Split the fertilizer application applying half in early spring and the remainder in mid-summer. NOTE: Under intensive management conditions 3 equal applications of fertilizer applied at 6-week intervals may prove to be more effective.
