In field trials in 1964-67, ammonium nitrate was broadcast at 100, 200 or 300 lb N/ac on Burley tobacco at plant population densities of 6700, 8040, 10 060 or 13 400/ac (24, 20, 16 or 12 in, respectively, between plants in rows 39 in apart) in irrigated and non-irrigated plots. 200 lb N/ac gave significantly higher yields than 100 lb N/ac in 2 years, but 300 lb N/ac did not increase yields further. The value/100 lb tobacco generally declined at rates of > 100 lb N/ac.
