Nitrogen fertilizer is an important component of crop production; however, its excessive application could result in N loss that could have serious environmental concerns. Straw incorporation in the soil after crop harvest is one of the most feasible straw management techniques, however, the optimization of nitrogen (N) fertilizer management and maize straw incorporation to modulate the crop yield and to maintain N balance in sweet corn is necessary to get better yields on a sustained basis… Expand

Optimized nitrogen fertilizer application strategies under supplementary irrigation improved winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield and grain protein yield
The use of split nitrogen fertilizer application at a ratio of 50%:50% basal-topdressing is recommended for supporting high grain protein levels and strong nitrogen translocation, in pursuit of high-quality grain yield. Expand
Response of 15N to corn straw and biochar application in soils with different fertility levels, during corn seedling stage
Abstract Nitrogen (N) is a necessary and the most limiting nutrient in crop production. Addition of organic amendments to the soil can improve the use of N fertilizer in crops. However, the responseExpand
