Course Description

Taking a proactive approach to nitrogen management during the growing season is very important for increasing the protein content of the wheat crop. This requires a thorough understanding of critical plant nutrients, plant growth stages, and weather parameters; and using this knowledge to make strategic decisions throughout the crop’s life cycle. This course will cover the impact of nitrogen application rate, timing, and method on both protein content and yield of wheat crops. Additionally, we will discuss how to determine whether investing in additional nitrogen will lead to a return through increased yield or premiums from higher protein content.

Course Instructor

Geza obtained his B. Sc. in agriculture (major soil science) and M. Sc. degrees with specialization in soil chemistry and inorganic chemistry from the University of Saskatchewan. Geza completed his Ph.D. at the University of Manitoba that launched his 40 plus years of teaching and conducting research in soil fertility and chemistry. Dr. Racz served as department head for the Soil Science Department at the University of Manitoba for over 30 years.

Much of Dr. Racz’s research centered on the reactions, fate and availability of various elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus and the minor elements as affected by method of application (both soil and foliar), soil characteristics and environmental conditions. He conducted extensive work using radioactive material to trace these 2 main nutrients (N and P) both in the soil and how they are taken up by the plant.

In 2003, Dr. Racz was awarded Professor Emeritus status by the University of Manitoba after more than 40 years of teaching and conducting research to shape the nutrient management plans that are still in place today.
