I decided to put my faith in N-Tester and only overruled it on a very few occasions, and I have to say it has done everything it promised it would. It hasn’t stolen any yield, and when I had the grain tested, I was pleased with the results. It got it bang on!
When fertilising this year, I’ve used 180kg nitrogen per hectare as opposed to 220kg, having followed the N-Tester’s advice.
