Catalogue: GRDC Media
" the results may be a game changer for northern grain growers because they usually try and time nitrogen applications with rainfall events to avoid loss of nitrogen into the atmosphere due to volatilisation," Mr Clark says... Dr Schwenke said the research looked at how much nitrogen was lost when applied to the soil surface in different formulations at different times... Two fallow paddocks broadcast with urea or ammonium sulphate in spring also had minor losses, except where ammonium sulphate was spread on a paddock with carbonates at the surface when losses were more than 30pc of that added...
