Title:    Demonstrating 4R Nitrogen Principles in Canola
Abstracts for project:  
A trial compared various methods of applying nitrogen in canola, including broadcasting urea, dribble banding UAN, and side-banding urea. Split timing of applications were also evaluated. The split applications were high yielding and resulted in the best combination of: low crop damage, high fertilizer use efficiency, and high yield. Fertilizer enhancers like Agrotain and SuperU are relatively expensive and may not be necessary if split applications are timed to coincide with June rainfall. June UAN dribble band application is quite compatible with high-clearance sprayers. This demonstration was effective in showing how 4R principles of nutrient management can be applied in field conditions.
