General results
Kg/ha → CoteN™ (8,100) > Urea (7,397) > T0 (7,309)
pl/m2 → T0 (284a) > CoteN (236b) > Urea (228b)
panicle/pl → CoteN™ (3a) > Urea (2ab) > T0 (2b)
g/1,000 grains →  all 24g

 –  The grain weight was the same for all treatments and the result came from the better tillering, a consequence of the higher amount of panicle per m2.
Worst treatment results and costs
T0 – zero (no cover-dressing) → Urea USD550/MT x 0.15MT + USD15 (coverdressing) = USD98/ha
Best treatment results and costs
CoteN™ → USD1700/MT x 0.09MT = USD155/ha
Net benefit of the best treatment ($/Ha)
CoteN™ → (8100Kg-7397Kg) x USD0.26/Kg = USD183 – (155-98) = USD55/ha

Conclusions

Summary
When comparing the final yield, the CoteN™ proved to be economically beneficial
