What happens to fertiliser nitrogen? locations
Aims

To determine what happens to pre-drilled N on southern Malle clay-loam soils.

Key messages
  • There are still many answers required before we can be confident on how to manage this important and expensive input to our farming systems.
  • There is little chance that we can work out a profitable N management system if we do not know what happens to applied nitrogen in our cropping soils.
