Grains and field crops
Trials were mainly sited in areas normally receiving more than 450 mm average annual rainfall. Response curves were fitted to each set of data and then averaged to give overall response curves for each crop. There was little difference between the crops in absolute or percentage response to nitrogen fertiliser but the nitrogen fertiliser rate required for maximum yield was highest for wheat and lowest for oats.
