Trial: Reduced N Application Rate on Late Harvested Ratoons

Case study

Paul Borg | Farleigh, 8 km N of Mackay

Due to the late harvest, nutrient application is often delayed until just prior to the onset of the wet season, with higher potential for adverse environmental and production outcomes if excessive nitrogen has the potential to move offsite.
