Examining the nutrient dynamics of willow biomass energy plantations
Natural Resources Canada, along with a number of Canadian provinces, considers bioenergy to be a legitimate and sustainable source of energy that will constitute a significant portion of future energy production. Shrub ...
Controlled Environment Comparison of Struvite Versus MAP on Growth and Recovery of Phosphorus in a Canola-Wheat-Pea Rotation
To meet the increasing demand for canola yield, prairie producers apply phosphorus (P) fertilizer to supply sufficient P for the current crop. However, the current maximum safe rate of seed-placed P for Saskatchewan are ...
Chemical Speciation of P from Band Applied P Fertilized Soil in Presence or Absence of Plant Growth.
There is limited information on how commercial phosphorus fertilizer application in a concentrated band impacts the solubility and transformation of phosphate compounds in presence or absence of plant growth in Canadian ...
