Start planning your nitrogen management strategy for fall-planted wheat now (and consider using a N-rich reference strip to manage your N more precisely)

In Season N Reference

Recent UCCE research has illustrated the value of in-season applications of nitrogen (N) fertilizer, particularly applications made at the early vegetative growth stages. This is typically the stage of growth when N demand from the crop is...

Is it too late to topdress fall-planted wheat with N fertilizer?

early-heading

We have received several recent inquiries following on our blog post from late January that discussed the potential value of a nitrogen (N) topdress at the tillering-to-jointing stages of wheat growth. This is particularly an issue with the higher than...

Topdress of nitrogen at tillering stage is something to seriously consider over the coming weeks

+/- N at late-tillering stage, 2014-15

Over the past 4+ seasons, a UCCE team (Lundy, Orloff, Wright and Hutmacher) has revisited nitrogen (N) fertilization recommendations for hard spring wheat specific to California conditions. We have grown wheat under a wide range of conditions and soil...
