Representative sampling size and number of required samples for soil testing in direct seeding fields
Direct seeding is widely utilized in the southern Canadian prairies. The associated band application of fertilizers makes conventional soil testing problematic. Strip sampling was suggested in direct seeding fields, but ...
Effect of DDGS manure on soil and plant: preliminary results of the greenhouse study
The use of dried distillers’ grains with solubles (DDGS) in feedlot cattle diets is increasing as the bio-ethanol industry expands. Manure derived from dried distiller’s grain with solubles (DDGS) fed cattle seem to have ...
Effect of soil amended with thin stillage on growth of canola and soil properties in a controlled environment study
A growth chamber study was conducted to evaluate the potential use of thin stillage as a soil fertilizer amendment. Seven treatments; control, 3 thin stillage rates (100, 200, and 400 kg N ha¯¹) and 3 urea rates (100, ...
Factors affecting nutrient supply rate measurements with PRS™-probes
This poster includes background information about how PRS™-probes are used to measure soil nutrient supply rates and how factors of the soil environment influence nutrient supply rate measurements. The discussion contains ...
