The rate of applied N (0 to 120 kg.ha -1) depends on the previous grown crop and the irrigation possibility.
The response of wheat to rates and time of N application and the fate of N applied to irrigated wheat were studied during two years.
Residual N recovery by soybean grown after the wheat was also studied.
The maximum grain productivity was obtained with 92 kg.ha -1 of N.
The efficiency of 15N-urea utilization ranged from 52% to 85%.
The main loss of applied 15N, 5% to 12% occurred as ammonia volatilized from urea applied on soil surface.
The N loss by leaching even at the N rate of 135 kg.ha -1, was less than 1% of applied 15 N, due to the low amount of rainfall during the wheat grown season and a controlled amount of irrigated water, that were sufficient to moisten only the wheat root zone.
The residual 15N after wheat harvest represents around 40% of N applied as urea: 20% in soil...
