Interrelationships of Soil Mositure Level at Planting Time and Nitrogen Fertilization on Winter Wheat Production1

  1. Robert E. Ramig and
  2. 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.
