Nutrient Uptake of Four Spring Wheat Varieties Grown Under Varying Nitrogen Stress


Start Date: 2011

Principal Investigator: Daniel Kaiser

Organization: University of Minnesota, Department of Soil, Water and Climate

Status: Complete

Background Information:

For wheat, nitrogen (N) is a major yield-limiting factor that, when deficient, can reduce growth and yield. The reduced growth may also impact uptake of other plant nutrients. Plant varieties may also differ in timing and quantity of nutrient uptake, as well as the partitioning of these nutrients within the plant.


This study examines nitrogen uptake and partitioning, and the effect on grain yield in hard red spring wheat. This data will help determine nutrient uptake and timing and the information provided to growers will assist in determining growth stage for nutrient application.
