Recent Ontario research has shown a strong interaction between fungicides and increased nitrogen, resulting in increased yield. To date, this research focused on soft winter wheat (SRW, SWW). Hard red winter wheat (HRW) is generally lower yielding but higher in protein than soft wheat, so it is unknown if HRW will respond in the same manner. The SMART soft wheat research also found a significant increase in protein levels, something often lacking in HRW. This trial will determine the yield and protein potential for Ontario HRW under the nitrogen by fungicide management regime, and what the economic implications might be.
