More nitrogen isn’t always better – especially in a drier year – when producing quality hay is the key to farm returns. That’s according to research funded by AgriFutures Export Fodder Program as part of the National Hay Agronomy (NHA) Project.

Dr Courtney Peirce, a Senior Research Officer at the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), who led the South Australian component of the NHA project said the research findings suggested growers wouldn’t be disadvantaged by a conservative nitrogen application strategy in drier growing seasons.
