Trends in nitrogen use and application in Western Canada

Trends in nitrogen use and application in Western Canada

Proceedings of IFA 1988 Technical Conference held Edmonton, Canada, Sep 12-15, 1988: 24

The use of fertilizer in Western Canada has been a relatively recent development and, compared to other parts of the world, the rates of fertilizer application are low. In the early 1960s the amount of nitrogen applied was small because newly broken farm lands tended to contain sufficient nitrogen in the form of organic matter to meet modest yield goals. The soils were deficient in phosphorus, however, so fertilizers rich in phosphorus were adopted more rapidly.
