The focus for this year edition of the CAMPO DEMO Cereals will then be on nitrogen use efficiency (NUE). NUE is frequently defined as the rate of conversion of N input (e.g., N- fertilizer applied and/or soil N) into total plant biomass or specific plant organ biomass (e.g., grain yield).
Wheat will be grown at three levels of nitrogen: 100% (as the farm practice), 25% and 50% less. In conditions of nitrogen reduction, different biostimulants will then be applied to evaluate the contribution of each of them to the crop’s growth in terms of chlorophyll content, yield, and quality traits (protein, starch, gluten, zeleny index, hectolitre weight and hardness).
The event will take place at Az. Agricola “Rosti Paolo” in Marzano (LO).
