The article reports on a calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) trial being conducted by Cambridge Arable Technology (CAT) in Great Britain in 2007. It was found from the last year test that 200 kilogram per hectare (kg/ha) nitrogen (N) of CAN yielded the same as 240 kg/ha N of ammonium nitrate. It said that the present trial is comparing 3 rates of CAN from 100 kg/ha to 180 kg/ha, with 4 rates of ammonium nitrate ranging from 60 kg/ha to 240 kg/ha on Robigus and Gladiator wheat varieties.
