I overseeded my bermuda this fall with perennial rye just like any other year. I previously used a synthetic program to manage my yard. It was relatively easy to manage the transition if I didn't feed the rye. Last year I went organic but had some trouble with the rye competing with the bermuda as it came out of dormancy. What should my organic fertilizing schedule be to have a smooth transition from rye to bermuda in the spring?

One thing to remember too is that last year the winter and early spring were very mild which may have increased the longevity of your rye.

Depending on where you live and the weather, the rye season can extend longer into the spring. I don't know of any organic solution to knocking out the rye without knocking out the bermuda. You might try scalping it down so the rye does not shade the bermuda.
