Nitrogen Use Efficiency in Vegetable Crops Laura L. Van Eerd, Ph.D., P.Ag. Ridgetown College, University of Guelph 519-674-1644
Methodology Crops: –Cucumbers –Squash –Peppers –Carrots 3 sites for each crop RCBD –4 reps –6 to 8 treatments
Methodology N treatments –0 N –Low (35 – 65 kg N ha -1 ) –OMAF recommendation –High (1.5x OMAF) –Very high (2x OMAF) –Split (Low + x = OMAF rec.) –UMAXX from Agrotain Cucumbers 0 65 110 165 220 65 + 45 110
Data Collection Soil sampling –Pre-site analysis (soil characteristics) –2 week after treatment (mineral N) –At split application (mineral N) Plant sampling –At split application (nitrate) Harvest –Marketable yield –Soil (mineral N) –Shoot and fruit (% total N)
Results – Marketable Yield
Results – Crop N Uptake and Removal N Applied (kg N/ha) Crop Uptake (kg N/ha) Crop Removal (kg N/ha) 034.2 (3.8) 27.5 (3.6) 11044.9 (5.7) 30.8 (2.7) 22048.7 (2.4) 31.9 (3.2) NUE - 12.8 (7.2) 8.6 (2.3) NUE = Pn f – Pn 0 fertilizer applied
Ammonia-N Results – Soil Mineral N Nitrate-N
OMAF Nitrogen Verification Project Crop Technology Team 200 sites across Ontario (70 Hort) 3 years - 4 samples per year 2,400 soil samples!
