The effects of potassium and chloride nutrition on seed yield of canaryseed
The year to year variability of grain yield in canaryseed has been a major concern among canaryseed growers. An experiment was conducted to determine the responsiveness of canaryseed seed yield to potassium (K) and chloride ...
Short-rotation willow productivity and nutrient dynamics after three years of irrigation and fertilization
Purpose-grown shrub willow (Salix spp.) represents a viable bioenergy feedstock; however, there needs to be sufficient biomass production to support the economic viability of these plantations. The objective of this ...
Effect of phosphorus form on short-term solubility and availability in soils
A laboratory experiment was set up to compare solubility and “availability” of four phosphate fertilizer sources over a period of 32 d after application to soils with varying pH levels. Three soils, one acidic and two ...
Effect of uniformity of land application of solid cattle manure on crop yield and soil nitrate
Equipment used in Western Canada to apply solid cattle manure (SCM) are known to exhibit uneven uniformity of distribution of material. For organic bio-solid manures to be a viable supplement or alternative to chemical ...
Organic weed management in pulse crops
Pre-irrigation of a severely-saline soil with in-situ water to establish dryland forages
Alfalfa serves as one of the most important forage plants in North America. It is also the recommended remedial crop for dryland salinity control. But, because of its limited salt tolerance, it does not establish satisfactorily ...
