Amending the soil with compost each year should be sufficient for fertilizing asparagus, or you may use a general purpose fertilizer.

Weeds should be controlled before asparagus sprouts. There may be some grass selective herbicides that can kill it in asparagus, but there are no organic solutions other than hand pulling.
