I planted some Bucklunch at the beginning of August. I plan to put some 46-0-0 on my turnip patch but I have a question about burning the plants. Is it best to put it on when the plants are dry and it is going to rain in the near future? If I buy the slow release stuff from Walmart, does it matter when it is applied?

Just buy 46-0-0. Apply when leaves are dry and rain in the forecast. You will have no problem. Maybe 50lbs to the acre will be enough as a boost.

At this point in the growing season, you probably don't want some sort of slow release fertilizer anyway.

Another question on turnips: I just planted. When is the latest I can give a urea boost? is beginning of Oct too late? When do they stop growing?

Hard to answer that one, it depends on October's weather where you are. Brassica are cool weather plants, but, if the weather is too cool, they will slow their growth. For the price of a bag of urea tho, probably wouldn't hurt to give it a boost.
