Recent research efforts have assessed root traits that may improve phosphorus use efficiency (PUE) of cereal plants through improved phosphorus (P) acquisition. Replicated field trials assessing the response of four different wheat and barley varieties to P applications performed during 2015 and 2016 suggests that economic benefits of selecting a variety potentially requiring less P inputs is outweighed by the variety with greatest yield potential at current grain and fertiliser prices.
