Determined the effect of wheat straw, manure, and N fertilizer on soil organic matter, N supply of the soil, and yield and protein of wheat, over 18 years. Manure N was equal to treatment with 1600 lb/ac straw and 100 lb/ac ammonium sulfate. No treatment greatly changed wheat yield or test weight. The N content of grain increased with manure, ammonium sulfate alone, and straw plus ammonium sulfate. All treatments increased organic C except 100 lb/ac ammonium sulfate alone, and 50 lb/ac ammonium sulfate plus 800 lb/ac straw, and the check. All plots but 2 lost N during the experiment. The C/N ratio increased in every plot regardless of treatment.
