It is recommended that bentgrass be fertilized with 4 1/2 pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. An annual program would call for spring feeding of 1 1/2 pounds each in the spring, summer and early fall. Supplementary applications would be as color and growth dictate, but normally at a rate of no more than 1 pound per 1,000 square feet.
