Abstract An empirical model to examine economically optimal nitrogen fertilizer rates for winter wheat when nitrogen affects crop yield and crop price is presented. The results show that the ex post estimated economically optimal nitrogen rate for one of the two analyzed experimental sites was 33-43 kg ha^sup -1^ higher when the relationship between the protein concentration and the price is considered compared to the situation when constant wheat price was assumed. Not considering the wheat… Expand
