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, ...
What agronomic practices can reduce the effect of Fusarium head blight on durum wheat in Saskatchewan?
Fusarium head blight (FHB) has become an important disease of cereals in moist regions of western Canada. This disease has played an important role in contributing to lower grain yields and substantial downgrading of durum ...
What happens to the soil organic matter if I till long-term no-till?
The long-term practice of no-till (low-disturbance direct seeding) is an effective method to increase the soil organic matter (SOM) content of the soil. If that increased soil organic matter is traded as an offset for ...
Nitrogen fertilization of canola and wheat grown on fallow fields
This is the second year of a three-year project to assess N fertilizer needs of canola and wheat grown on fallow fields. The project is being carried out at six sites (three in Saskatchewan and three in Alberta) utilizing ...
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 ...
