Stabilizing yield and quality: early maturing chickpea for the prairies
Progress in chickpea breeding has been constrained by lack of good sources of early maturity in the short-season temperate environment of western Canada. We hypothesized that the length of the chickpea life-cycle could be ...
RAPD and AFLP markers linked to anthracnose resistance gene in PI 320937 lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.)
Colletotrichum truncatum (Schwein.) Andrus & W.D. Moore is the causal fungus for anthracnose disease in lentils. A germplasm accession, ‘PI 320937’, is among the lines used as a resistance source to develop cultivars in ...
Plant genomics in lentil breeding: development of a cDNA-based rapid screening method for Ascochyta blight resistance in lentil (Lens culinaris L.)
Ascochyta blight causes severe crop losses in temperate lentil production areas around the world, including Saskatchewan. At present there is no reliable system available to breeders for identifying blight resistant lentil ...
Adaptation of chickpea to high latitude areas with short growing seasons: biomass and seed yield responses
This study was conducted to determine plant establishment, biomass and seed yield of chickpea under diverse environmental and crop management conditions. Four cultivars were grown on three types of seedbed using N ...
Field survey of kabuli chickpea and dry bean plant spacing uniformity
In an effort to reduce capital expenditures, dryland growers of kabuli chickpea and dry bean in Saskatchewan have been seeding their crops with conventional seeding equipment rather than precision planters. Intra-row plant ...
Sclerotinia stem rot control in small-seeded lentil production in the Black Soil Zone
Lentil production in the black soil zone is limited by the susceptibility of the crop to diseases such as sclerotinia stem rot. The objective of this project was to determine stem rot control strategies in small-seeded ...
Dry bean production: effectiveness of inoculants and N fertilizer
Dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) production in western Canada is steadily increasing. In 1999 production reached 200 000 acres in Manitoba and 12 000 acres in Saskatchewan. These figures are projected to increase to 270 000 ...
Increase of Mycosphaerella blight in field pea through plant injury
Mycosphaerella blight, caused by Mycosphaerella pinodes, is a major constraint to field pea production in the prairies. Controlling the disease by developing better genetic resistance is a major goal of field pea breeding ...
Red lentil production in Saskatchewan: Y not 2K?
