Short-rotation willow productivity and nutrient dynamics after three years of irrigation and fertilization
Purpose-grown shrub willow (Salix spp.) represents a viable bioenergy feedstock; however, there needs to be sufficient biomass production to support the economic viability of these plantations. The objective of this ...
The effect of irrigation and fertilization on willow productivity
Purpose-grown shrub willow (Salix spp.) represents a viable bioenergy feedstock, especially if these plantations can be successfully grown on unproductive land that is marginal for annual crop production. The objective of ...
Evaluating different techniques for estimating biomass in short-rotation willow plantations
The hallmark of any successful purpose-grown willow production system involves regular monitoring of willow growth to apply timely management techniques for supporting increased productivity, but also timing harvest for ...
Effect of soil properties on pyroxasulfone bioactivity and field application rates
The relationship between pyroxasulfone bioactivity and soil properties has not been investigated in a wide range of soils typical of western Canada. In this study, 47 soils from Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta, with ...
