splitting application

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Delaying top-up nitrogen (N) applications until canola crops are flowering is unlikely to incur big yield or oil production penalties in lower-rainfall parts of the Western Australian grainbelt... Mr Seymour says at the majority of sites across the two years, delaying N application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (near to flowering) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application... Mr Seymour says splitting applications to 25kg N/ha at sowing and 25kg N/ha eight or 12 weeks later had a better effect on oil and yield than applying a single dose of 50kg N/ha near flowering...

Caption: GRDC western panellist Gemma Walker says GRDC-funded research into identifying and developing canola varieties and management tactics to maximise yields across WA is continuing this year by CSIRO and DAFWA... Caption: At most DAFWA-GRDC trial sites in WA's eastern grainbelt, delaying nitrogen application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (near to flowering) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application... According to Mr Seymour, at most sites over the two years, delaying N application until eight or 12 weeks after sowing (close to flowering time) or splitting applications produced similar yield results to earlier times of N application...
