In field trials in 1972-4, 0, 60, 120, 180 or 240 kg N/ha as NH4NO3 or urea was applied to rye grown as a winter catch-crop for fodder. There was a progressive increase in yield of green forage or DM and of protein and oat units/ha with increase in rate of N applied. NH4NO3 resulted in better yields of green matter, DM and protein than urea. N utilization and the productive response to N decreased with increase in rate of N applied.
