A project was initiated in the fall of 2006 to compare the effect of early (mid-September) and late (mid to late October) fall, and spring application of anhydrous ammonia and urea on the yield of barley, wheat and canola in barley-wheat-canola-wheat rotation. The experiment now in its third year is being carried out in two locations (Watrous and Lake Lenore) and involves four rates of N (0, 30, 80 and 120 kg N ha-1) with or without treatment with a nitrification inhibitor (N-Serve) annually applied on the same plots and four replicates for a total of 39 treatments. Consistent significant differences in all six-site years were responses to N and anhydrous vs. urea, the latter being a result of the inefficiency of the low N rate (40 kg ha-1) when applied as anhydrous ammonia. Overall, there were no differences due to time of application.
