The two key yield components of wheat are grain numbers per unit area, and the individual grain weight. High yields come from achieving the correct leaf and shoot numbers, maintaining a green leaf canopy, increasing grain numbers/ear/spike and grain size. A balanced crop nutrition program including all macro and micro nutrients is essential to help manage all of these components.

A balanced crop nutrition strategy is essential and should also include secondary and micronutrients which are essential elements in achieving high yields.
