What’s in your soil matters more than you think. Three different spots in a field of Soil Builder Plus. Nitrogen carryover varied for each spot from uneven manure application (too much in some spots and too little in others), which meant the mix looked quite different, depending where you stood. More nitrogen in a spot means more grass expression. Less N = legumes take the advantage (don’t forget, legume fix their own nitrogen, making them more competitive in lower nitrogen soil).
