Effect of rotation and short-term tillage on soil quality after long-term zero tillage
A field study was established in 2000, near Brandon Manitoba, to determine the effect of tillage and crop on soil physical and biological properties. Most soil physical and biological properties were not affected by tillage ...
Stubble effects on crop microclimate and crop performance in a sub-humid prairie climate
Stubble impacts crop microclimate in ways that have not been well-investigated, particularly in the context of crop establishment, growth and yield. In this study, the effects of different stubble heights on crop microclimate, ...
Fusarium species in underground tissue of pulse, oilseed, and cereal crops grown in southeast Saskatchewan
A total of 643 cereal, oilseed and pulse crops were sampled in southeast Saskatchewan in 2000 and 2001 for Fusarium populations in underground living tissue. Many of the Fusarium spp. isolated from discolored roots/subcrown ...
Response of cereals to fertilizer N on pulse and other stubbles
To optimize cropping systems requires knowledge of effects of the preceding crop on the grain yield and protein and the response to N of a following cereal crop. To gain this knowledge, we grew hard red spring (HRS) wheat, ...
Colonization of cereal and noncereal crop residues by Fusarium spp. in southeast Saskatchewan
In July of 2000 and 2001, residues of wheat, barley, oat, canola, flax, lentil and pea crops were sampled from over 300 fields in southeast Saskatchewan. The non-cereal crops sampled had been preceded by a cereal crop, ...
Indian Head precision farming research project, relationship of soil properties to plant characteristics, a preliminary analysis
Soil properties and crop characteristics were measured in a two-year study at Indian Head, Saskatchewan. A one-acre sampling grid (308 sampling points) was established in eight plots representing phases of a canola-wheat ...
