Is it Time to Make Wheat Protein?

Wheat growers are nearing decision time on whether to supplement their wheat crop with nitrogen for protein enhancement.

Currently it is suggested that if the yield potential of the wheat crop looks good, and higher than for the N rate initially supplied (i.e. at 2 lb N soil and fertilizer per bu), consider trying a treatment. And check with your marketing consultant whether market signals suggest a shortage of high protein wheat being harvested elsewhere.
