Alfalfa serves as one of the most important forage plants in North America. It is also the recommended remedial crop for dryland salinity control. But, because of its limited salt tolerance, it does not establish satisfactorily ...
Screening for salt tolerance in native and exotic shrub willow
(University of Saskatchewan, 2010-03-31)
Dryland salinity is a significant agronomic problem across the Canadian prairies, with an estimated four million hectares of salt-affected land. The potential exists to make better use of saline marginal lands by developing ...
How well does camelina tolerate root zone salinity?
Crops of CS15 camelina and InVigor 9590 canola grown in saline rooting media were evaluated for plant emergence, height growth, grain yield, and oil production. The experiment utilized Canada’s Salinity Tolerance Testing ...
Nitrogen effects on water use efficiency in the semi-arid Canadian prairies
In the semiarid environment of the Canadian prairies, water is the main constraint to crop production. Few studies have examined the influence of fertilizer on water use efficiency (WUE) and fewer still have made comparisons ...
Does seed size affect alfalfa establishment and productivity in saline seedbeds?
Large, medium and small seeds of Rangelander alfalfa, were sown in saline media in Canada’s Salt Tolerance Testing Lab. The emergence and survival data indicate that large-size seeds confer a degree of salinity tolerance ...
