Abstract

This study focuses on the questions of profitability and risk in dryland precision N rate applications. Poor-repeatability of past yield-rankings observed over time, combined with uncertainty in rainfalls following N applications, reduce predictability of outcomes such that precision N rates performed no better in financial terms than uniform applications.
