The effects of potassium and chloride nutrition on seed yield of canaryseed
The year to year variability of grain yield in canaryseed has been a major concern among canaryseed growers. An experiment was conducted to determine the responsiveness of canaryseed seed yield to potassium (K) and chloride ...
Optimizing nitrogen rates in Camelina sativa
Camelina is a new oilseed crop to western Canada with potential applications in cosmetics, human nutrition, and biofuel. Nitrogen recommendations for camelina production in Western Canada aren’t available. Field studies ...
Manure, crops, and soil health
Forage yield of unfertilized perennial crops in simple and complex mixtures under two management strategies in northeastern Saskatchewan
A field experiment was sown on May 27, 2008 at Melfort, Saskatchewan (52O44’N 104O47’W) on a thick Black Chernozem (Udic Boroll) silty clay soil to compare the effects of perennial forage crop monocultures and mixtures on ...

Management for optimum yield of open pollinated and hybrid canola
Newer open pollinated (O.P.) and hybrid canola varieties provide higher yield potential but the management strategies necessary to achieve optimum yield are not well understood. To better understand the levels of inputs ...
Effectiveness of elemental S fertilizers on canola after three annual applications
Plants feed on sulphate-S, but now elemental S fertilizers (which cost less per unit of S than the sulphate-S fertilizers) are available for commercial use. The effectiveness of elemental S fertilizers depends on how quickly ...
