Optimum Time and Placement of Fertilizer with Direct and Conventionally Seeded Winter Wheat

N and P fertilizer management for winter wheat

IPNI-1994-CAN-AB10

Poor weather, yields and prices caused winter wheat acreage in Alberta to decrease by several hundred thousand acres in the last 10-15 years. However, newer, higher yielding varieties are causing a resurgence in winter wheat production and a demand for better information about fertilizer management. This project has been evaluating fall versus spring applied N and seed-placed N and P fertilizer in direct seeded winter wheat. Read more
