53  Broadcast all of the phosphate and potash fertilizer in the fall.  Broadcast 100 lbs nitrogen per acre, one-half or not more than 60 lbs nitrogen per acre in late August and balance in February.  Profitable nitrogen rates depend on stocking rate and forage needs.  If stocking rate is reduced, adjust nitrogen rate accordingly.

651  The soil test boron is low, however, this is not a boron sensitive crop, therefore no boron is recommended.  (When soil test boron is low)

652  The soil test manganese is low, however, this is not a manganese sensitive crop, therefore no manganese is recommended.  (When soil test manganese is low)

653  The soil test zinc is low, however, this is not a zinc sensitive crop, therefore no zinc is recommended.  (When soil test zinc is low)

54  For grass-legume mixtures where the legume is less than one-third of the ground cover, broadcast 60 lbs nitrogen per acre in late August and again in the spring if additional production is needed.  If legumes represent one-third or more of the ground cover, do not apply nitrogen.  Stocking rate should be adequate to use forage as it is produced on grass-legume pastures.
