Impact of crop rotation and tillage on some soil quality characteristics
An 11-yr rotation-tillage experiment conducted on a coarse-textured, Brown Chernozemic soil at Cantaur, southwestern Saskatchewan, was used to demonstrate the beneficial effects of reducing cropping frequency and tillage ...
Economic and risk considerations of nitrogen fertilizer use in the Brown Soil Zone
Optimum use of nitrogen fertilizer requires consideration of factors that influence plant response and those that govern the decisions of producers. The response of spring wheat to soil moisture and N fertilizer was assessed ...
Effect of soil moisture and soil organic matter on soil bulk density during a growing season
We measured surface (0-7.5 cm) soil bulk densities at nine sampling times for two and four long-term crop rotations at Swift Current and Indian Head respectively, to determine the effect of crop management and time. In a ...
Effect of tillage on selected soil biochemical characteristics in a coarse- and medium-textured soil in southwestern Saskatchewan
Characterization of soil organic matter is valuable for identifying the overall quality of soils. Crop management will influence soil quality. Some changes may become apparent more quickly than others and may depend upon ...
