The general area of growth regulators and N application is reviewed by
Naylor, Stokes & Matthews(1987).  I've also read an interesting paper
about the mechanical properties of wheat stalks by Jacek Gowin that is
relevant to your question.  The effect of N application on plant
structure in barley is discussed by White (1991) and Walker & Matthews

I'd be interested to know about other relevant papers - please post to
a summary to the group - thanks.
