Generally similar results may be expected from all the sources of nitrogen available for cereal growing.
The unit nitrogen price and the convenience of use of each fertiliser in the particular situation should be taken into account in deciding which fertiliser to use.
THE first point to consider when deciding which nitrogen fertiliser to use for wheat growing is the effectiveness of the nitrogen source in increasing crop yield. Second, the cost per unit of nitrogen must be considered.
The convenience of using a particular source in a particular situation is also important and greater convenience may offset some cost disadvantages in some situations.
