On Farm: Post-Anthesis Nitrogen in Spring Wheat

On-Farm: Post-Anthesis Nitrogen in Spring Wheat

  • Start date: 2018
  • Project Length: 1 Year
  • Project Status: Completed

Background

Benefits to MB Producers: When does it make sense to apply nitrogen in-season for your wheat crop in Manitoba? This is a question in many farmers’ minds if the potential to capture protein premiums exists.

PROJECT PROTOCOLS: POST-ANTHESIS NITROGEN (PAN)

Objectives:
  • Objective: To quantify the nitrogen management practice of post-anthesis nitrogen application to produce high yield spring wheat with acceptable protein quality.
