Seed Treatment Notes

No wire worms were found in the field, so the additional insecticide seed treatment did not provide the intended protection.

TRIAL OBJECTIVE: To influence protein levels through applications at different timings on wheat.

Last N Protein Notes

The dry conditions late in the season kept protein levels high, limiting any potential increase that might have been observed through foliar applications.

TRIAL OBJECTIVE: To test PGR response under two nitrogen rates.
