This may have been talked about before but I cant find it in search.

 

What are the Pros and Cons of applying N after you final cutting in Russel Bermuda hay field ? 

 

Is it a waste or will it help?

A waste....I like to try and get last cut off around now. Residual N should get grass growing a bit before first frost. Hth

I think Fall is a good time to apply P/K & micro-nutrients but I agree I think Fall applied N will leech out before 1st Spring cutting
