ABSTRACT
The article focuses on difficulty facing growers on whether to top up winter cereals with final nitrogen applications. The total amount of nitrogen required by crop is 212 kilogram/hectare. The reason for the need to not change the plan coming into the spring back in February/March is because the season has been condensed into fewer weeks.
