N rate for 1st year Timothy

Don’t usually come onto this part of the forum so apologies if it’s been covered recently.

I’ve got some Timothy, drilled back in September, clay soil, 300ft above sea level. What sort of rates of N should I be putting on to get a decent first cut this year, and then for following years?

Presume you are using it for a hay crop. Will need around 100 units N / acre in year 1
