Fact Sheet:

When overseeding with grass, apply 150 pounds of nitrogen (N) in three split applications, 50 pounds nitrogen per acre at planting, 50 pounds nitrogen per acre in the winter, and 50 pounds nitrogen per acre in spring. For grass-legume mixtures, apply 100 pounds nitrogen per acre in two split applications, 50 pounds nitrogen per acre at planting and 50 pounds nitrogen per acre in mid-winter. For legume overseeding, do not apply nitrogen fertilizer.
