Balance crop demand with nitrogen supply
Balance Crop Demand with Nitrogen Supply of N Applications in Spring Wheat

Nitrogen Supply

Crop Demand

In-crop N where crop demand exceeds soil supply


In crop n management for protein
In-Crop N Management For Protein of N Applications in Spring Wheat

  • Is the extra N needed?

  • Source?

    • Urea, UAN, ammonium nitrate

  • Timing?

    • Seeding, tillering , boot, anthesis

  • Placement?

    • Foliar, soil-applied


Methodology
Methodology of N Applications in Spring Wheat

  • Field studies from 1997-2000 at several sites in Black Soil Zone of Canadian prairies

  • Hard red spring wheat

  • 75 kg N ha-1 applied at seeding compared to 60 kg N ha-1 applied at seeding plus 15 kg N ha-1 as in-crop application




Predicting the need for in crop n
Predicting the need for in-crop N compared to at seeding

  • Good growing conditions

    • yield potential exceeds the target yield

  • Visual N deficiency symptoms

  • Tissue N levels

  • Use of SPAD meter

    • Chlorophyll meter

    • Assesses “greeness”

50 ppm base N


Foliar application of n

Under dry conditions, late N applications to soil may be unavailable

Foliar applications may allow N uptake by plant

greater advantage in drier areas?

Foliar Application of N


Summary
Summary unavailable

  • Benefit of in-crop N was variable

    • often only minor benefit over application of N at seeding

    • consider cost of extra operation

  • Ammonium nitrate >urea >UAN in increasing protein content

    • volatilization losses from urea

    • little actual foliar uptake

  • UAN may be beneficial with late application under dry conditions
