Correcting sulphur deficiency on canola during the growing season
A field experiment was conducted in 1998 at two sites (Porcupine Plain - Gray soil, and Star City - Dark Gray soil) in northeastern Saskatchewan to determine the influence of rate, time and method of application of sulphate-S ...
Impact of topography and nitrogen fertility on canola and wheat diseases
Precision farming technology may offer the ability to increase current levels of grain production per unit cost by improving the efficiency of inputs. Canola diseases such as Sclerotinia, Alternaria and blackleg and wheat ...
Relative effectiveness of various Cu fertilizers in improving grain yield of wheat after four annual applications on a Cu-deficient soil
The deficiency of Cu is not wide spread in Saskatchewan, but whenever it occurs it can have a serious reduction in grain yield and quality of wheat. A 4-year experiment was initiated in spring, 1999 to study the response ...
A summary of placement and fall versus spring application of nitrogen fertilizers
In 52 field experiments since 1973-74, the yield of barley grain without N averaged 1570 kg/ha, but the yield was increased by fall and spring application of incorporated urea (56 kg N/ha) to 2540 and 3470 kg/ha, respectively. ...
Fire and iron: tools for disease management?
Large volumes of crop residue are often managed using tillage or burning. This study examined the effect of these practices on diseases of barley [leaf spots, Pyrenophora teres Drechsler and Cochliobolus sativus (Ito & ...
