The first number is nitrogen, the second is phosphorus, and the third is potassium. And example is 24-4–8.  Remember to always spread fertilizer evenly.

Complete fertilizers

These numbers state the percentages by weight of nutrients in the bag compared to the total contents of the bag. The percentages are called the analysis or the formula grade.

A 3-1-2 ratio of nutrients has proven to be generally good for fertilizing home lawns. However, factors such as local climate, soil conditions, and the form of nitrogen in the fertilizer influence what is best in various locations. A fertilizer with a 3-1-2 ratio could, for example, have a formula of 21 – 7– 14. Although it is not critical for a fertilizer to have exactly this ratio, something close to it is recommended. A higher nitrogen ratio of six – one –two is common.

For proper application follow the directions on the label. Some complete fertilizers or manufactured for general use. While other fertilizers are designed to be used on specific grass.
