Trial: Variable Rate Nitrogen Application Based on Zone Yield Potential

Case study

John and Phil Deguara | North Eton, 25 km SW of Mackay

Phil and John have aimed to develop a project which allows them to identify different management zones within blocks of sugarcane. Their goal was to apply variable rate applications of nitrogen based upon the identified yield potential of each management zone within the paddock.
