Effectiveness of meat and bone meal and distillers grain ash as a phosphorus source for crops
Production of biogas from organic materials via gasification also generates a valuable byproduct of ash. Ash contains the original nutrient present in organic materials, except carbon, nitrogen and sulfur that are lost as ...
25 years of tillage effects on wheat production in a continuous cropping system
Heat stress occurs often in wheat on the Canadian Prairies especially during grain growth (from anthesis to maturity), which has a markedly negative impact on yield (McCaig 1997). Under no-till management (NT), surface ...
Does seed size affect alfalfa establishment and productivity in saline seedbeds?
Large, medium and small seeds of Rangelander alfalfa, were sown in saline media in Canada’s Salt Tolerance Testing Lab. The emergence and survival data indicate that large-size seeds confer a degree of salinity tolerance ...
Effects of liming on soil pH and crop yield
The continuous use ammonium–based fertilizers in crop production have the tendency to acidify soils and threatened crop production in the long-term, leading to reduced crop yields. Conventional lime products used to remediate ...
Seeding management to reduce temperature stress in Brassica species
Fall seeding is a promising new technology for canola production in the prairie. A field trial was conducted to extend this technology to the semiarid prairie, where at least some drought and heat stress is expected ...
Effect of soil amendment with alfalfa pellets and glycerol on nutrition and growth of wheat
Two pot experiments were carried out under controlled environment conditions in the laboratory. One was to assess the ability of alfalfa pellets to supply plant available N as an organic fertilizer. The other was to ...
