Growing feed barley this yr wondering how much actual N guys are putting down? I realize it depends on soil tests, stubble being planted on, and of course expected yield.
When I have fertilized mine it seems like it’s too much as it starts to lodge. I don’t think it needs as much as durum or wheat?

Variety and area makes a big difference of how hard you can push the barley. Generally we are 10-15lbs less on feed barley than our wheat. On some of our land we can put as much N with barley as wheat without issue.
