Nitrogen management for wheat in a variable climate

R Norton

Profitable use of N and P to meet crop requirements in a variable climate such as the grain belt of southeastern Australia means adopting strategies that minimize risk. Using yield potentials, N and P demands can be estimated, but research shows there is no particular penalty if N is provided as the yield develops during the season. As yet there are no strategies for in-crop P application although research is pointing the way.
