Abstract The development of best management practices (BMPs) for optimum nitrogen (N) use by crops contributes to farm profitability, increased food and fiber production, and best stewardship of the environment and its resources. Such BMPs are both site- and crop-specific. Optimum N use by plants is influenced not only by climate and certain soil characteristics, but also by management practices such as tillage, time and method of N application, or positive interactions with nutrients and supporting cropping practices. Phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are two of the nutrients essential for effective use of N by plants. Nitrogen interactions with P and/or K help to improve root system development, dry matter production, and other plant functions regulating crop yield and quality.
