On the other posts, people have recommended to fertilize again 30 days after sprouting. Hope that helps.

Joedeer the answer would be yes. If you have already a good stand another round of fertilizer will really kick it in the rear. Try and plan your spreading with a rain and you will be glad you did.

I'd suggest broadcasting some ammonium nitrate or urea. This will give that new growth a much needed shot if nitrogen.

Yup. I like to top-dress with Nitrogen about 60 days after germination. The cereal grains (wheat/oats) will get a real boost from it. I would not bother adding more P and K as they are not as volalite (don't evaporate like nitrogen does).

Everyone above thinks 33-0-0 would be your best bet.
