Field Evaluation of Urea Compared to Enhanced Urea Products

The experiment was conducted in the 2009 field season at a field site in West Central Saskatchewan in the Dark Brown soil zone near Kindersley, SK. The trial evaluated the yield response of canola (food quality oil rapeseed) to regular urea and polymer coated urea that were both side banded at planting, at rate of 40 lb N / acre (typical N rate for stubble seeded canola in the region).

The experiment will be conducted in the 2009 field season at a field site in West Central Saskatchewan in the Dark Brown soil zone near Kindersley, SK. The trial will constitute the thesis project of Janelle MacDonald. GMACS Ag Team, an independent crop supply company, owned by the student’s father is the cooperator and will be looking after the plot maintenance and seeding/fertilizing operations.
