soybean meal and grass seed

Posted by hogan_nj nj (My Page) on

I just planted new seed about a week ago with starter fert. I have some soybean meal left over and was wondering if it would be a good idea to put some down with new seedlings.

If so what could I expect? Would it interact with the starter fert.?

Is it a waste to use with new seed?

RE: soybean meal and grass seed

Since a basic premise of organic gardening/turf management is to feed the soil, make the soil as healthy as possible so it will grow strong and healthy plants, I am never sure just what a "starter fertilzier" is. If you have had a good, reliable soil test from Rutgers and your soil is in a good, healthy condition then there is no need to apply a nutrient source now. If you've not had a good, reliable soil test done yet, now is the time.

My landscaper is in the process of getting one from rutgers. He said to wait on the lime til results come in.
