Post-Anthesis Foliar N Applications to Boost Grain Protein in HRSW.

Interest in improving grain protein in hard red spring wheat (HRSW) with in-season applications of nitrogen (N) fertilizer is on everyone mind, since protein premiums and discounts are rumored to be even greater this year than last. 

A "Cliff Notes" summary of foliar feeding of N immediately after anthesis can be found here.  The original Minnesota Crop News article, published in 2006 and reprinted in 2014, explaining the practice in more detail can be found here.
