This paper analyses varietal differences in yields of the joint products of grain and straw, the decision to adopt new varieties, and nitrogen demand. The low straw yield of semi-dwarf varieties under low input conditions is shown to be a plausible explanation for their slow adoption in some regions. First generation modern varieties induced a large increase in the derived demand for nitrogen, but subsequent varietal development appears to have had little impact on nitrogen demand
