The objective of this work was to test sources of nitrogen and application times in top dressing for the wheat crop in the area of Mauá da Serra-Pr. It was used wheat ‘CD-104’ in direct sowing system, using a spacing between plants of 0.17 m and a density of 350 seeds m-2, being accomplished a base fertilizer applying 400kg ha-1 of the formulated fertilizer 10-20-10. The treatments had been constituted of 3 sources of nitrogen (Urea, Sulfate of Ammonium and Nitrate of Ammonium), applied in broadcasting in 3 different times (soon after the sowing, in the tillering and in the booting), resulting in 9 treatments. Each parcel was constituted by an area of 4.0m x 5.0m being considered as useful area the 5 central lines. The used experimental design was of blocks at random with 4 replications . There are no differences in the yield of grains among sources of N not even for the application times. The late application at the booting of the crop caused a production of grains of better quality with larger weight and protein content.
