Sixty pounds of nitrogen applied at seeding time gave higher yield increases on irrigated wheat than other rate or time of application. Nitrogen did not affect germination, number of spikes per head and number of kernels per spike. It increased highly significantly the number of tillers and mature heads per plant, and weight of 1,000 grains. It also increased nitrogen, moisture and potash content but decreased phosphorus and dry matter percentage. Number of kernels per head and fat and ash content were not affected.
