The University of Arizona Timely Tips for January
in the Low Desert

Tip of The Month
Apply fertilizers carefully. Too much fertilizer can cause salt burn and too little can cause nutrient deficiency problems. Be sure to water both the day before and immediately after applying granular fertilizers. Only apply fertilizers when plants are actively growing other wise it will be washed away before they can use it.
