    Hopefully get on with our first dose of urea on our w/wheat and w/barley, what percentage of total N would you apply now?
    Agronomist is recommending 40% on wheat and 50% on barley

    Wheats look brilliant. Ground still cold. 25% going on next week
    Andrew K and parker like this.
  3. Urea 120 kg n for first dose this week

    If it had been warmer we would be looking at all on by the end of March
    No till crops heavy land timing is flexible with regard to yield have a job to get crops too far forward here unless established in the first half of September
    Last year most was on by 1st April

    spreader was set at 250kg/ha urea still from last year. So that's what it got. ;)

    I went for 50kgN last week as a starter as urea. Another couple of weeks and it’ll get most of the rest once it wakes up a bit, plus some AnS sooner if possible.

    I presume this is for notill crops (given that it's in this section).
    I go earlier on notill crops as you don't get the N released from cultivation and can loose tillers.
    I do 3 splits + a protein dressing on milling wheats.
    I put a third of total on in early march AN+S. A bit later than otherwise with the last dose.
