Hi all, I am just wondering if anyone else has had experience using ESN then going back to 46-0-0 for a nitrogen source and if you experienced a protein drop in your wheat? Last spring (2019) we went from a single shoot Flexicoil 5000 to a side band pillar hoe disc drill. In the past with the 5000, for about 10 years, we were using 80 percent ESN on our crops so as we could get the N we wanted down with the seed, 65lbs actual on cereals, 70 lbs actual on canola. 20 percent SBU. Last years (2018) CPS wheat proteins were in the 12 to 13.9 range with the ESN. This year (2019) bumping the N up to 75 actual on the ,CPS wheat proteins were 10.1 to 13.0. the 13.5 was on a manured field, the rest were 12 or under. Yields were actually less this year than last year as well the protein was down. It was and above ave year for moisture, (14 inches) but I was disappointed with the yields and proteins, especially since I was expecting higher yields with the sideband. Basically, we spent the same dollars per acre on N this year as we did last year as we bumped the actual up to 75# vs 65# with ESN. Looking at our yields and proteins, I am wondering if the drops were from switching out from ESN back to 46 or if this was or may have been due to the dry spring. I know the plant needs N later in the growth stage to bump the protein in the samples, so I am thinking that maybe we should be going back to ESN. I suppose also the smartest thing to do would be a side by side field trial. Thoughts???
