Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, tall fescue


Tall fescue production was measured during the third production year of a study with locations started in fall of 2016 and fall of 2017. Phosphorus (P) fertilization rate af­fected spring harvest yield at Site 1, but not at Site 2. Applying nitrogen (N) in late fall or late winter resulted in greater spring yields than applying N in spring or not applying N. However, fall harvest yields at Site 1 were greater with spring N application, but not at Site 2. The third-year tall fescue total yield rank as affected by N fertilizer timing was late winter>late fall=spring>no N at Site 1 and late winter=late fall>spring>no N at Site 2.
