9617. Grant, C.A., E.H. Stobbe and G.J. Racz. 1984. The effect of N and P fertilization on winter survival of winter wheat under zero-tilled and conventionally tilled management.. Can. J. Soil Science 64:293-296..
A preliminary field study was conducted to investigate the influence of fall applications of nitrogen and phosphorus on winter survival of winter wheat on zero-tilled and conventionally tilled land. Nitrogen fertilization tended to decrease winter survival while phosphorus fertilization tended to increase survival. A N-P interaction was observed, with the derease in survival in response to added N being more evident in the absense of applied P. Balanced N-P fertilization may therefore result in highest winter survival in both conventionally tilled and zero-tilled winter wheat.
