Trial: Adjustment of Nitrogen Application Rates Based on Yield Potential of Older Ratoons

Case study

Malcolm Langdon | Dawlish, 8 km W of Sarina

Mal is aiming to reduce N on fourth or older ratooning canes. This trial looked at two different fertiliser rates, compared to his usual application rates of 170kg/ha N.
