The Effect of Seeding Date, Seeding Rate, and Applied Nitrogen on the Yield of Canaryseed
A major problem when growing canaryseed is the year to year fluctuation in yield experienced by Saskatchewan farmers. The cause of this fluctuation in yield is not known, but suggestions include seeding rate, seeding date ...
Effect of cropping frequency, wheat classes, and flexible rotations on yield, production, and nitrogen economy in a Brown Chernozem
Producers in the semiarid Canadian prairies frequently summerfallow (F) to conserve water, control weeds, and to maximize soil N reserves; however, this practice often results in soil degradation. A crop rotation experiment ...
Adaptation of chickpea to high latitude areas with short growing seasons: biomass and seed yield responses
This study was conducted to determine plant establishment, biomass and seed yield of chickpea under diverse environmental and crop management conditions. Four cultivars were grown on three types of seedbed using N ...
Disease management strategies for Ascochyta blight of chickpea
Management of chickpea ascochyta blight is a difficult task that requires ongoing attention and utilization of all possible techniques. Starting with clean seed of a resistant cultivar is critical, but even with this sound ...
Optimizing seeding rates and plant densities for Camelina sativa
Camelina is a relatively new oilseed crop to western Canada. Currently there is little research available for camelina seeding rates in western Canada. A field study was conducted in 2007 and 2008 for 9 site years at ...
