Nitrogen Management in Wheat By Kent Wolfe CCA-ON, CCS Crop Sales Specialist AGRIS Co-operative - Dutton
Nitrogen management is a critical part of winter wheat production. Focusing mainly on soft red winter production, adequate nitrogen needs to be available to the plant throughout the early stages right up to heading stage of growth to maximize both yield and protein content. One of the most difficult challenges for a wheat grower each spring is making nitrogen decisions.
Advanced Information Services (AIS) “Bringing you what’s next” By Dale Cowan CCA-ON Senior Agronomist/Sales Manager AGRIS Co-operative & Wanstead Farmers' Co-operative
The next step on our AIS Precision Ag approach is to work with you to understand and illustrate the importance of proper planting performances. We certainly have the tools to work with growers who have planter monitors and yield monitors. It’s the integration of these two technologies that allows us to use the tools in our Agvance GIS combined with our agronomy programs to create more insight on each and every acre.
