3 Reasons to Fertilizer in the Fall — 1) Timeliness: There is more time to put fertilizer on all types of ground cover in the fall, when you aren’t trying to plant and fertilize between spring rains, and applicators aren’t balancing time between sprayers and fertilizer spreaders. 2) Less soil compaction risk: Generally in the fall, soils are dryer than in the spring. Heavy fertilizing equipment on wet soil can cause compaction in the rooting zone, causing roots to pancake or spread out when they hit a compacted layer of soil, resulting in poor crop standability and less nutrient uptake. 3) Increase winter hardiness: According to an article from the University of Purdue, adding potassium to alfalfa fields in the fall can increase the plant’s winter hardiness and survival.
