Dont agree on a pound of N is a pound of N theory. There is a wide difference between N efficiency as N2 gas, amounium, nitrate, and nitrite, with ammonium being the best.

I don't know what you mean by "nitrogen efficiency" and I suspect you don't either. For the purposes of most people who post here plants uptake nitrogen as nitrate. No matter what form the nitrogen is in when it is applied, the plant needs to have it converted to nitrate in order to absorb it. And at the root surface a pound of nitrate is a pound of nitrate, no matter whether it came from cow **** or the Haber-Bosch process. End of lecture.

I agree with you but I think he was more referring to how/what is applied, and the efficiency of converting said product to nitrate form. Such as the difference between moist and dry soils when applying anhydrous, or liquid fert, the methods used to apply urea such as broadcast/in-furrow, etc.

I think N conversion efficiency would better describe what downandlow was eluding too.

Pretty sure plants take up ammonium and nitrate. To believe nitrogen conversion and up take effiency between different forms of n is identicle is incorrect. Lots of variables your working with here including but not limited to soil texture, moisture, microbial activity .... lecture over!
