    Normally do 3 , but this is going to be a late start , so I'm thinking best lash some on N1 and do 2 splits , what's the thinking ?

    Depends how well tillered it is. Any muck under it.
    I prefer little and often.

    Hopefully it will alter fast when it does dry up. I agree that it'll be end of the month .

    He was referring to AN vs urea, I think

    Urea takes longer to work, so if going later I’d stick to AN. I managed to get 40 units of urea on when it was travelable, and it’s certainly altered today.
    This is rye, that did look a bit on the thin side.

    Speed of leaching and conversion to nitrate. There was a thread about it recently but I don't think it makes much difference.

    What crops are you referring to? A big dose of N before the end of tillering in cereals will encourage lush growth and increase the risk of lodging later on.

    Wheat 40 kg now. Half done so far. The rest will be split between GS30 at the end of March and again once we've been round the first main dose, usually GS32-33 in mid-late April.
    OSR 110 kg N on late Feb. Campus is a foot tall already. Same dose again after doing the 1st main split on wheat during stem extension hopefully before flowering starts.

    12 degrees C here today, with soil temperature 8 degrees at 4" deep at 10am this morning. Lovely sunny day. It's almost spring like.
