Interrelationships of Soil Mositure Level at Planting Time and Nitrogen Fertilization on Winter Wheat Production1
- Robert E. Ramig and
- H. F. Rhoades2
Maximum yields on low nitrogen soils resulted from the application of 20 pounds of N per acre for every 3 inches of available preplanting soil moisture. Flour of inferior protein quality was milled from wheat grown under high moisture stress. N recovery increased from 30 to 50% as available soil moisture at seeding time increased from O to 8 inches. Water use and water use efficiency increased as available soil moisture and rate of N fertilization increased.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
