Nitrogen management that maximizes margins, improves sustainability of wheat cropping

D Nash, P Riffkin, R Harris, A Blackburn, C Nicholson, M McDonald.

Flexible wheat cropping systems that maximize crop potential with minimal N application at sowing, were found to maximize both economic and environmental performance in southeastern Australia. A range of management combinations were used to estimate the impact of different combinations of initial soil N status and fertilizer strategies for wheat cropping in the Victorian high rainfall zone (Dunkeld, Victoria).
