Increasing Grain Protein Levels with Chafer Nufol

Increasing Grain Protein Levels with Chafer Nufol

Chafer Nufol is a source of foliar nitrogen that can be applied to wheat crops between growth stages 69 to 75 (end of flowering up to milky ripe) in order to increase the level of grain protein. Typically, protein levels can be increased by 1% through a well-timed application of Nufol.

Increasing Oilseed Rape Yields with Chafer Nufol

Increasing Oilseed Rape Yields with Chafer Nufol

Nitrogen management in oilseed rape should target three key timings; autumn for optimal establishment and vigorous early growth; spring for optimum canopy structure and growth pre flowering, and finally during flowering to optimise green area duration maximising yields.

Fertilizer spreading advice

Fertilizer spreading advice

To get the best results when using fertilizers, the nutrients have to be spread accurately, evenly and at the right rate across the whole spreader width. Yara has joined forces with SCS to bring you the latest advice on spreading fertilizer.

Why are spring fertilizer applications more successful ?

Why are spring fertilizer applications more successful

Spring, rather than autumn applications of some fertilizers have been shown to produce increases in cereal yields – so what’s the logic behind this approach?

Maximise returns on nitrogen

Maximise returns on nitrogen

Yara nitrogen response trials confirm you should be expecting a return of at least 400% on nitrogen

Following Yara's recommendations will help you achieve the maximum return on investment in fertilizer.

Making sense of nitrogen

Making sense of nitrogen

You can be forgiven if you are feeling somewhat confused by the current nitrogen scene. Some years ago life was very simple with only limited options available but today the choice is a whole lot more complicated.

Why is heavier better?

Why is heavier better?

Some fertilizers consistently spread further and more accurately than others, so what are the properties to look for in a fertilizer if spreading accurately over wide bout widths is important to you.

How much straight nitrogen?

How much straight nitrogen?

Before ordering your straight nitrogen it is worth considering how much you actually need as it may be you actually need NS or NPKS grades instead.

Don't forget about sulphur

Don't forget about sulphur

Sulphur was often overlooked in the past but today it is recognised as an essential nutrient and considered just as important as nitrogen, so not to be forgotten.

Risky soil management

Risky Soil Management

It is worth reflecting on the risks a crop nutrition strategy introduces and the impact cost cutting could have on yield volatility. Yield stability is one way of protecting against the effects of market value volatility to avoid the worst case scenario of low price and low yield.

3x3 Driving OSR forward

3x3 Driving OSR Forward

Oilseed rape is a key crop for the UK

The 3x3 'Driving OSR Forward' initiative demonstrates the most effective management and agronomy practices to meet the challenge of growing this crop profitably.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Carbon Footprint

When using Yara fertilizers according to the crop programmes and advice given by Yara, farmers can be sure they produce maximum yields with the minimum impact on climate and environment and they are able to prove this.
