Applied nitrogen increased the growth rate of the grass very little when the average soil temperature was below 45° F. Grass fertilized with nitrogen showed the greatest increase in growth compared with unfertilized grass when the average soil temperature was between 47° and 55°. When the temperature went above 55° the difference between unfertilized and fertilized grass decreased.
