Spring nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) applications to wheat in Virginia are imperative for high yielding systems. Questions often arise regarding the last Spring N and S application split (GS30) as temperatures rise and chances for wheat injury increase.

What management practice should a farmer utilize to reduce risks?
