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?

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.
