Abstract

Four experiments were established in1961 with three varieties of oats and eight fertilizer treatments. The four experiments involved two planting dates and two locations. The influence of varying rates of applied nitrogen and phosphorus on the yield of oats; nitrogen content of the grain; and amino acid content of the protein were studied. The effect of fertilizer treatments on the yield of oats was different for each seeding date and each location. The data from these experiments would lead to the following conclusion for growing a better crop of oats in central eastern South Dakota. The considerations which must be made are the variety’s maturity, planting date, soil type, and fertilization. In soil, where fertility is medium and early planting (mid-April) is possible, a choice between the mid-late or medium season varieties (CI 7374 or Clintland 60) can be made. The most effective fertilizer treatments would be higher in nitrogen as a ratio of two parts of nitrogen to one part of phosphorus. If the late planting is inevitable, the variety CI 7374 appears to be best suited, with a fertilizer combination higher in phosphorus.
