5-10-30 + Iron: Starter and Centipede Formulation Description

5-10-30 Starter and Centipede Formulation is a traditional fertilizer mix used for generations in farming and landscape maintenance as a starter fertilizer. This formulation adds a small amount of nitrogen, but is higher in phosphorus and potassium. Phosphorus and potassium are important in early spring to encourage health and more prolific root growth in warm-season grasses.

Starter and Centipede Formulation is also the go-to formula for Centipede lawns because it's low in nitrogen. Fertilize Centipedegrass based on the feedback from a soil test - your Centipede lawn may not need fertilizing at all and can be damaged, especially with too much nitrogen.
