Microbial community structure under various wheat-based cropping systems
The effects of cropping systems on soil biological quality are slow to develop. We sampled the soil of a 36-year old long-term experiment established on an Orthic Brown Chernozem, at Swift Current SK, in the fall of 2003, ...
Influence of pulse crops on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in a durum-based cropping system
Pulses are an important component in crop rotations in southern Saskatchewan. Besides their capability to fix nitrogen, pulse crops establish a symbiotic relationship with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, which have been shown ...
Seasonal variation in the soil microbial community in wheat-growing soil and influence of C, N, and P inputs
It has long been know that N and P fertilization increases plant growth and yield, but the impact of fertilization on soil microorganisms has rarely been considered. Long-term plots (36-year old) under fallow-wheat-wheat ...
The effect of long-term application of P fertilizer on soil grown forage plants
Phosphorus (P) fertilization does not always increase crop yields but the repeated use of P may modify the biological properties of soils. The objective of the present study, therefore, was to investigate the effect of ...
