Soil mineral nitrogen (Nmin) was measured to 90 cm at a total of 12 sites in the UK in the autumn after an oilseed rape experiment, which measured responses to fertilizer N. On average, Nmin increased by 15 kg/ha per 100 kg/ha fertilizer N applied to the rape, up to the economic optimum amount of N (Nopt).
