Fertilization of willow bioenergy cropping systems in Saskatchewan, Canada
The detrimental effects of climate change and the threat of diminishing fossil fuel reserves is forcing society to search for renewable sources of energy. Energy can be derived from the biomass of plant material by co-fire ...
Relationships among soil properties, crop yield, protein, and response to nitrogen fertilizer application in an undulating landscape in south central Saskatchewan
A field experiment initiated in spring 2012 was established to assess the relationships between grain yield, grain protein and soil properties including elevation, electrical conductivity, pH, and organic carbon in an ...
Agronomic and Environmental Effects of Phosphorus Fertilizer Application Methods
As farm size increases on the Canadian prairies, improving operational efficiency is important for growers. While seed row placement is generally considered the most effective phosphorus (P) placement method for small ...
Legacy Effects of Long-term Manure Applications on Soil-derived Nitrous Oxide Emissions
Termination of the manure application treatments at the Dixon long-term manure research site in Humboldt, Saskatchewan provided a unique opportunity to explore how a change in management regime to annual urea applications ...
BIOENERGY BY-PRODUCTS AS ALTERNATIVE SOURCES OF PLANT NUTRIENTS FOR PRAIRIE SOILS
Rapid growth in the bioenergy industry has created large amounts of the various by products associated with bioenergy production. A proper method of utilizing these by products has recently been sought, including their ...
Response of canola to different seed-row placed fertilizer phosphorus forms, opener configurations and rates of application
Maintaining canola yields requires that phosphorus (P) removed from soil in crop harvest is replaced through P fertilizer application. Rate of P fertilizer application, form used, and method of placement are important ...
