Effect of repeated additions of liquid swine manure and solid cattle manure on soil organic carbon
The agronomic effects of liquid swine manure and solid cattle manure application on soil nitrogen (N) and crop yield in Saskatchewan soils has been well documented (Mooleki et al. 2002b, Mooleki et al. 2004). However, the ...
Biomass accumulation and nutrient uptake of oilseeds at different growth stages in the parkland region of Saskatchewan
Field experiments were conducted with canola (Brassica napus and B. rapa, cv. Quantum and Tobin), mustard (cv. AC Vulcan) and flax (cv. Norlin) in 1998 and 1999 at Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada, to determine biomass and ...
Effect of cultivation, tillage practice, and fertilization on total organic carbon, light fraction, and microbial biomass carbon in soils from the Loess Plateau of China and the Canadian prairies
Three soils: Huangmian, Huihe, Heilu soil, from the Loess Plateau and one soil: Orthic Brown Chernozem, from the Canadian Prairies, were used to evaluate the effect of cultivation time, tillage system and fertilization, ...
Soil carbon changes in cultivated land converted to grasses in south-central Saskatchewan
Soils play an important role in the carbon cycle. Under natural conditions, soil organic carbon forms an equilibrium with the environment. Disruption to this equilibrium can transform the soils into either a source or a ...
