Abstract Reported regional wheat yields in Paraguay vary from 1 to 3 t/ha from year to year, but appear not to be correlated with El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phases. Historical weather data from two locations in representative wheat-growing regions of Paraguay, Encarnacion-Itapua and Ciudad del Este-Alto Parana combined with crop modeling, were analyzed to optimize nitrogen (N) fertilizer application rates according to the ENSO phase of a growing season. The ENSO phase of a growing… CONTINUE READING
