How soon should I spread bagged nitrogen in the spring and be sure that I will get a good response from it?

Teagasc says its research in recent years has shown that, until soil temperatures on a farm are consistently over 5ºC, there will be very little response to it. Teagasc advises when the temperature is consistently above 5ºC and is rising, apply 23 units of N per acre to fields that have 5-8cm of grass, where the swards have a high level of perennial ryegrass, as these will respond the best.

Grass growth needs a temperature of over 6ºC for significant growth, but growth rate increases rapidly as the temperature goes from 6ºC up to 12-13ºC and then more slowly until the temperature reaches 20-25ºC, which is the optimum for growth.
