Fall-seeded wheat generally does not require N fertilizer for establishment. Fall-applied N or preplant N can aid in the establishment of wheat under specific planting conditions and crop rotations, but should be managed on a case-by-case basis. Previous research has suggested the need for fall-applied N to help compensate for the large amount of crop […]
