COPPER FERTILIZATION OF WHEAT
Copper (Cu)is the micronutrient most often deficient in Saskatchewan. Since Cu is generally thought of as immobile in soil, placement is a critical issue. This research was conducted to compare traditional and new Cu ...
Microbial Regulation of Soil Greenhouse Gas Emissions in a Non-Bloat Legume Grazing System
Cattle pastures are a source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including enteric methane from ruminating cattle, carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitrous oxide (N2O) from microbial respiration of soil carbon (C) and nitrogen ...
Coupled iron reduction-ammonium oxidation (Feammox) in alkaline soils polluted with nitrogen
Although nitrogen fertilizers help stimulate plant and microbial growth in N-limited soils, the use of excess N fertilizers to improve agricultural yield in Canada can cause adverse side effects of groundwater and surface ...
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 ...
CARBON DISTRIBUTION AND GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS IN CULTIVATED AND RESTORED GRASSLAND SOILS IN SASKATCHEWAN
The impact of grassland restoration on amounts and forms of soil organic carbon (SOC)were examined using soil cores from paired cultivated and restored grassland catenae in the Missouri Coteau region of south-central ...
Soil Organic Carbon Quantity and Distribution in Frost Boils in a Canadian High Arctic Polar Semi-desert Ecosystem
High Arctic soil organic carbon (SOC) stores are a key component in the global C cycle and are locally important for nutrient cycling in the polar deserts that dominate these regions. Compared to other Arctic regions, we ...
