Title: Proper Management--Key to Successful Winter Wheat Recropping in Northern Great Plains
Author: Halvorson, A. D.; Black, A. L.; Sobolik, F.; Riveland, N.
Description: Since controlling saline-seep areas requires more intensive cropping of seep recharge areas to reduce water loss by deep percolation, the potential of including winter wheat in intensive cropping systems in northwest North Dakota with various levels of N fertilizer was examined. Ammonium nitrate 133-0-01 and urea 145-0-01 were applied at seven rates from 0 to 120 lb NIA to three winter wheat varieties: Winalta, Froid and Centurk. After two years of re-cropping, third-crop average grain yields for all three varieties increased from 16.4 bulA with no N added to 41.5 bulA with 60 IblA of N added. Nfertilizer significantly increased protein content, straw production and income per acre. With proper management, winter wheat has an excellent potential to be included in intensive cropping systems in north-central and western North Dakota and north-eastern Montana.
