Effect of rate and time of nitrogen fertilizer application on durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var. durum) grown on vertisols of Bale highlands, southeastern Ethiopia
Globally, nitrogen is considered as the second most limiting nutrient in the crop production and limits yield in non-fertilized agriculture. A greenhouse experiment on the Effect of rate and time of nitrogen fertilizer application on durum wheat (Triticum turgidum Var L. Durum) grown on Vertisols of Bale highlands, southeastern Ethiopia was conducted, to determine the optimum nitrogen (N) rate and N timing of application on durum wheat plant yield components. The experimental was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with five N levels in factorial combination with three N timings as treatments with three replications.
