Across the Prairies, new high-yielding spring wheat varieties challenge traditional nitrogen strategies for profitable production of high yielding milling quality wheat. The new varieties mean a change up for nitrogen recommendations. Dr. Don Flaten and Amy Mangin will discuss their research on nitrogen management for high yielding spring wheat at Top Crop Manager’s Soil Management and Sustainability Summit, being held Feb. 26, 2019, in Saskatoon.
Don Flaten is a professor in the department of soil science at the University of Manitoba, and Amy Mangin is currently completing her PhD while working alongside Flaten on updating N recommendations for spring wheat in Manitoba.
Don and Amy will break down their recent research that evaluated the most effective and efficient combinations of N application rates, timings and sources for spring wheat production at yields up to 130 bushels per acre. In addition, the study evaluated several innovative soil tests for their ability to predict the amount of organic soil N released by mineralization during the growing season.
Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear the facts straight from the experts. The Summit is also approved for 7 CCA-CEUs and 7 CCSC-CEUs. Register today for the 2019 Soil Management and Sustainability Summit!
