Our aim was to investigate the interaction of nitrogen and fungicide in the control of yellow spot in wheat varieties of varying yellow spot resistance... The results of the trial suggest that nitrogen and fungicide are each effective on their own, and also in combination, for managing leaf spot diseases on susceptible wheat varieties... Nitrogen application increases the vigour of wheat plants and number of tillers and can increase yield and may allow for fungicide application to be more effective, particularly on susceptible wheat varieties...

Have a well thought out plan in regard to nitrogen application and amend it as the season unfolds... With the ability to measure starting soil moisture and nitrogen levels and a variety of ways in which we can apply nitrogen to a crop, planning for nitrogen input can start before a seed has hit the ground... A crop should be assessed for disease or other nutrient deficiencies prior to spreading additional nitrogen...

Vary your nitrogen for best results in the Mallee.. Using a combination of field trials and simulation modelling, we tested the theory that it would be profitable and better for risk management to zone according to responsiveness to nitrogen," Dr Llewellyn says... With the continuing increases in no-till farming, more focus is required on nitrogen levels, as the soil bacteria and fungi that break down stubble compete with crop plants for nitrogen, which reduces the nitrogen available to the plant...

Cover of Nitrogen Management in stubble retained systems booklet "We did note that while the yields were good on the swales, the protein levels in the 'nil fertiliser' treatment were starting to drop, which indicates persistent lack of nitrogen fertiliser would not be sustainable, even on the heaviest swales and regular monitoring of starting nitrogen levels is needed."..

Five strategies to manage nitrogen deficiency in Central Queensland.. Mr Conway says that due to the flooding in recent years, growers are being encouraged to introduce more grain legumes into their rotations to put nitrogen back into the soil... Growers are encouraged to talk to their local agronomists about smart fertilising programs, and to consult the GRDC handbook Managing legume and fertiliser N for northern grains cropping : www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-Booklet-ManagingFertiliserN..

Thomas examined the outcomes of soil sampling by growers in the Birchip Cropping Group... The soil test project has shown the importance of rain not only to provide water for crops but to mineralise nitrogen to help crops to grow, as well as the importance of controlling summer weeds such as heliotrope and the benefit of timing of soil testing... The most important observation from this project has been timing of testing...

High nitrogen atmosphere to control pests in storage.. By controlling the atmosphere in grain storage, growers can potentially capitalise on the benefits of using a non-insecticide alternative to phosphine, according to Murdoch University's laboratory business and industry liaison manager, James Newman... "I think the idea of using nitrogen for storing grain on-farm will gain momentum over the next few years," he said...
