When temperatures drop, grass stops growing above the ground and accelerates downward to grow roots for the following summer. This requires energy – nutrients.
Healthy root systems help the turf survive summer heat and drought as well as resist insects and fungus. The experts at Virginia Cooperative Extension say, “Fall is the OPTIMAL time to aggressively fertilize cool-season turfgrasses (bluegrasses, fescues, and ryegrasses). Cooling temperatures and shorter days provide ideal conditions to maximize root growth and food storage in cool-season turfgrasses.”
