Optimising timing and rate of nitrogen applications in waterlogging conditions locations
Aims

To enable growers to make timely and efficient nitrogen decisions in the Albany and Esperance port zones by having a rule of thumb around the cost/benefit of nitrogen fertiliser for crops on waterlogged soils.

Key messages

With the varying results from this project, it is evident that response to N is both site and situation dependant. Further work needs to be undertaken to be able to create a broad rule of thumb around the cost/benefit of feeding N to crops on waterlogging soils
