Hello
It is safe to apply fertilizer at time of seeding. Apply a starter fertilizer at a rate of 1 lb N per 1000 sq. ft. A starter fertilizer is one with an NPO ratio similar to 1:1 or 1:1:5.
If you have time, have a soil test done. You may purchase a Home and Garden Soil Test Kit from MSU Extension.
