extra nitrogen

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Growers thinking of using late-season nitrogen loading to bolster crop protein should think again, following a detailed crop and economic analysis led by the Northern Grower Alliance (NGA)... A research project led by the NGA, a grower solutions group funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), conducted trials in 2012 and 2013 to evaluate the impact of late nitrogen strategies on protein accumulation and the likelihood of economic benefit... "The series of 11 trials showed that significant increases in protein can be gained by late nitrogen application, but the level of increase was not sufficient to deliver economic benefits in any trial," NGA chief executive Richard Daniel said...

Conference sessions focused on nitrogen fixation in farming systems and research into organisms that can form nitrogen-fixing relationships with plants - and which present future opportunities for grain growers... There were field tours to research sites in SA's mid-north to view progress of work into different pea cultivars and their response to inoculation... "By not inoculating at all, or not inoculating often enough, growers could miss out on opportunities to get more nitrogen into soils and achieve better yields of grain legumes and pastures, as well as following cereal crops," he said...

Trials run over several years and sites highlight that the newer durum lines such as Saintly (pictured) do not require extra nitrogen for growth but require more nitrogen to achieve 13 per cent protein... The extra nitrogen should be applied as late as possible to minimise the potential for increased screenings... Trials run for three years (2009-11) identified that varieties with higher yield potential such as Yawa , WID802 and Hyperno were favoured most by early sowing...

Summer sowing of serradella by Brookton growers Colin and Anna Butcher is returning a profitable legume to their cropping system and filling the autumn feedgap for their meat sheep flock... The pair say a shift to the hard-seeded Margurita serradella ( Ornithopus sativus ) is delivering free nitrogen (N) to cereal crops, providing an opportunity to use new herbicide groups as part of an integrated weed management (IWM) system and producing productive sheep feed in the autumn gap...
