Variably apply Nitrogen at stage 30 can make your fields more even before stem extension. Have a look at our example of map on wheat.
A field with strong heterogeneities at tillering
Dose planned by the farmer: 100 kg N/ha
We can observe a biomass ranging from 1,5 T/ha to 4 T/ha on this wheat parcel before growth stage 30. This difference can be compensated by a variable application of Nitrogen before stem extension.
Variable application of Nitrogen to increase the field potential
120 KG OF NITROGEN BETTER APPLIED
Variably apply at stage 30 enables to:
- Push the below-average crops to catch up with the best developed ones
- Apply an average dose to the average biomasses
- Limit lodging by favouring the main tillers in case of large biomasses
Result: the parcel is more homogeneous before heading / stage 39
