GRDC Nitrogen Supplies for EP Growers

According to the Grain Research Development Corporation, Eyre Peninsula growers can better capture the yield potential of their cereal and canola crops by carefully managing nitrogen supplies.

The GRDC says applying nitrogen fertiliser in-season based on available moisture and predicted yields helps ensure the nutrient demands of the crop can be fully met, while minimising the economic and seasonal risks of extra inputs, especially in wet conditions.

To support growers and advisers in understanding soil nitrogen cycles and requirements in agriculture, the GRDC has published A Nitrogen Reference Manual For The Southern Cropping Region, which can be found VIA the GRDC website.
