2003 South East Research Farm Inc. project results update – economic analysis of field scale ‘pesticide-free production™’ of flaxseed
The flax variety CDC Bethune was grown under two cropping systems. The most common conventional method will be compared to growing flax under the Pesticide Free Production (PFP)™ guidelines. Two PFP™ treatments will be ...
Fusarium species in underground tissue of pulse, oilseed, and cereal crops grown in southeast Saskatchewan
A total of 643 cereal, oilseed and pulse crops were sampled in southeast Saskatchewan in 2000 and 2001 for Fusarium populations in underground living tissue. Many of the Fusarium spp. isolated from discolored roots/subcrown ...
Rotation and fertility effects on root rot of spring wheat in southwest Saskatchewan
Spring wheat grown in a replicated trial for one or two years after summerfallow, lentil, flax, or continuously (with and without fertilizer N) was examined for subcrown internode discoloration from 2000 to 2002 in southwest ...
Colonization of cereal and noncereal crop residues by Fusarium spp. in southeast Saskatchewan
In July of 2000 and 2001, residues of wheat, barley, oat, canola, flax, lentil and pea crops were sampled from over 300 fields in southeast Saskatchewan. The non-cereal crops sampled had been preceded by a cereal crop, ...
Effect of rotation and short-term tillage on soil quality after long-term zero tillage
A field study was established in 2000, near Brandon Manitoba, to determine the effect of tillage and crop on soil physical and biological properties. Most soil physical and biological properties were not affected by tillage ...
Where in the genome is the flax b1 locus?
Characterization of flax germplasm for resistance to fusarium wilt
Fusarium wilt of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lini (Fol) is an economically important disease that can result in severe yield losses. Due to the pathogen’s ability to survive in soil ...
Using the General Linear Mixed Model (GLMM) to Predict Yield of New Flax Cultivars
Traditional approaches to analyzing data generated in plant breeding programs involve the use of ANOVA and an overall average of genotypic performance across environments and/or years. This approach, in some cases, is an ...
