Henry Ewart Trial Progress

To evaluate the use of 6 Easy Steps N Rates on High Organic Carbon % Soils that are low in the landscape

Many growers are apprehensive lowering their Nitrogen rates to the new levels of 6 Easy Steps. This project will be used as an Innovation site to compare the 6 Easy Steps Nitrogen rates to traditional grower standard Nitrogen rates, with the aim of increasing adoption levels. On heavy soils that are prone to waterlogging, concerns around high nitrogen loss conditions (waterlogging and denitrification) and low 6 Easy Steps limits are often raised.  This trial should highlight that the lower rates of 6 Easy Steps on these soil types are adequate and won’t result in any yield losses
