Worldwide research has shown a potential to increase wheat yields and protein with split nitrogen (N) applications. In Ontario, split N applications rarely seem to increase yield (Johnson, McClure as well as Hooker at al). However, low protein levels continue to plague the hard red winter (HRW) wheat segment of the Ontario industry. This trial evaluated timing and number of nitrogen applications on both yield and protein in HRW, and what the economic implications might be.
