Are oats responding to higher levels of macronutrients?

The objective of this project is to demonstrate the response of a modern oat varieties to the historically recommended rate of 60 lb N /ac against the more recently suggested recommendation of 90 lb N/ac, and to determine the relative importance of adding phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and sulphur (S) for these different nitrogen (N) recommendations in eastern Saskatchewan. The influence of treatment on oat yield, lodging and t186-SaskOats-ADOPT-20200484-Are-Oats-Responding-to-Higher-Levels-of-est weight will be determined. This project is funded by the ADOPT program.
