Nitrogen and non-nitrogen benefits of lentil in the succeeding wheat crop
Incorporation of legumes in a cropping system has positive agronomic benefits to subsequent crops, particularly cereals. These benefits are associated with improved N availability to the subsequent cereal and/or non-N ...
Landscape-scale variability of nitrogen fixation and N balance of lentil
A study was conducted near Dinsmore, SK in the Dark Brown Soil Zone to determine the landscape-scale variability of N2-fixation and N balance of a lentil crop. Stable 15N isotope dilution method was used to determine ...
Nitrogen cycling in an alfalfa-bromegrass sward
Contribution of hay harvest losses and "leaf fall" to N cycling and the N nutrition of intercropped alfalfa and bromegrass
A significant amount of forage plant biomass is deposited on the ground as senescent leaves, petioles and flowers (leaf fall). In addition, a varying amount of plant biomass is lost during harvest of hay crops (hay loss). ...
Temporal availability of N to wheat in a lentil-wheat rotation
Incorporation of legumes in a cropping system has positive agronomic benefits to subsequent crops, particularly cereals. Some of these benefits are associated with improved N availability to the subsequent cereal. A study ...
Use of carbon isotope discrimination to indirectly select for improved seed yield in lentil
Carbon isotope discrimination (CID) has been proposed as a secondary trait to indirectly select for improved water use efficiency and seed yield. To determine the effectiveness of CID to indirectly select for seed yield, ...
