Optimum Nitrogen Fertilizer Management Strategies for High-Yielding Spring Wheat in Manitoba

Optimum Nitrogen Fertilizer Management Strategies for High-Yielding Spring Wheat in Manitoba

  • Start date: 2016
  • Project Length: 2 years
  • Project Status: Complete

Background

Objectives: The overall purpose of this project was to determine the optimum nitrogen (N) fertilization strategies for high-yielding spring wheat in Manitoba. This information is needed because Manitoba farmers are growing new varieties of spring wheat (eg. AAC Brandon and Prosper) and using other crop management tools (e.g., fungicides) that have resulted in much higher yield potential than for the spring wheat production systems on which our traditional N recommendations were developed.
