ABSTRACT
The capitalization of agricultural production often takes place under price instability of final products. This provides the quantitative need to modify the resources allocated to the agricultural production process in order to obtain best economic values. More exactly, in a retroactive way, the economic optimum point will have different values for different times, corresponding to the variable price of capitalization of production. Specifically, this study presents an analysis of variance of necessary amount of nitrogen which must be optimally allocated according to a situation of instability in the price of wheat, for the interval of wheat price between 150 and 300 Euro/tonne. Furthermore, several remarks are made on the size of differences obtained. Different values obtained were characterized by differences of up to 9,7% on mentioned interval; they have significant mplications for economic considerations; more important, the differences can also be approached from environmental reasons, regarding the negative impact of allocation of unjustified high amounts of chemicals.
