increased nitrogen

Catalogue: GRDC Media
New research has revealed that hybrid canola varieties are potentially a profitable break crop option for Western Australia's low rainfall zones and that growers in these areas can make savings by delaying decisions about nitrogen applications for these varieties in particular... DAFWA senior research officer Mark Seymour said the results, presented at this year's Regional Crop Update at Salmon Gums, indicated that hybrid RR lines could provide opportunities for growers in the region to use low rates of nitrogen at seeding and then add more nitrogen, as needed, to reach optimal yield... Mr Seymour said the trial highlighted the importance of assessing the nitrogen status of the crop and ensuring that canola was not over-fertilised in low rainfall areas, as the reduction of oil content levels with increased nitrogen could also lead to big discounts...
