Dairy Manure Applications in Irrigated Wheat Production Systems
February 12, 2020
Discover best management practices for irrigated wheat production systems receiving dairy manure applications. Recommendations are based on field research conducted in southern Idaho. Grain protein concentration, soil organic matter and plant-available organic nitrogen (N) increased significantly with increasing dairy manure application rate and frequency. These outcomes are beneficial for production systems that include hard red wheat varieties in the rotation.
