Rye Production, With Special Reference to Saskatchewan
To control weeds we have no other crop nearly as effective as is rye. As a frost-proof cereal rye has no equal. The general interest taken in rye by prairie authorities of high repute, on the grounds already advanced, can ...
The use of trial by battle in the work of Sir Thomas Malory
In this thesis I will examine the use of trials by battle in the work of Sir Thomas Malory. In Chapter One, I will study the historical practice of judicial combat in order to provide a background against which Malory's ...
Trace element geochemistry of the Milk River aquifer groundwater, Alberta, Canada
Groundwater samples from 27 wells located along a 50 km flow path in the Milk River aquifer, Alberta, Canada, were analyzed for trace elements including rare earth elements (REEs). The objectives were to: 1) complete the ...
The time value of options and writing strategies

Impact of switching from fall to spring fertilizer application : "an economic analysis of N2O reducing seeding systems in Saskatchewan"
Nitrogen (N) fertilizer applied in the fall has been shown to increase emissions of N2O a GHG (Nyborg et al. 1997). Applying N fertilizer in the spring is a management technique Saskatchewan grain and oilseed producers ...
Factors affecting the variance, the bias and the MSE of time averages in Markovian event systems
In simulation, time averages are important for estimating equilibrium parameters. In particular, we would like to have the variance, bias and mean-square error for time averages. First, we will discuss various factors and ...
Associative phase separation in admixtures of pea protein isolates with gum Arabic and a canola protein isolate with i-carrageenan and alginate
The overall goal of this thesis is to better understand mechanisms governing associative phase separation within admixtures of plant proteins (e.g., pea and canola) and anionic polysaccharides (e.g., gum Arabic, alginate ...
Towards construction and validation of an ends-in recombination system in Escherichia coli
Homologous recombination is the primary DNA repair pathway in bacteria and it is immensely important in repairing DNA double strand breaks. Components of the homologous recombination pathway have been well conserved ...
