Canola nitrogen trial locations

There were two styles of nitrogen trials exploring late nitrogen applications; nitrogen timing and nitrogen splitting. The nitrogen timing trials occured in the lower rainfall areas. The focus of these trials were a single nitrogen applications, up to 12 weeks after seeding. The nitrogen splitting trials occured in the high rainfall areas. The focus of these trials was the value of multiple nitrogen top ups, finishing as late as 16 weeks after sowing. Refer to the treatments section for further details.
