Fact Sheet:

Small grains - rye, wheat, oats. These crops can utilize about 100 pounds of nitrogen per acre during the growing season. Split the nitrogen (N) application, applying 50 pounds nitrogen per acre at planting and 50 pounds nitrogen per acre in late winter.

Ryegrass alone or small grain-ryegrass. Apply 50 pounds nitrogen per acre in the fall at planting, 50 pounds per acre in late winter, and 50 pounds per acre in early spring. Ryegrass has a longer than normal grazing season. The spring and winter application of nitrogen will help extend the grazing period if that is desired.
