Optimizing nitrogen rates in Camelina sativa
Camelina is a new oilseed crop to western Canada with potential applications in cosmetics, human nutrition, and biofuel. Nitrogen recommendations for camelina production in Western Canada aren’t available. Field studies ...
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 ...
Influence of nitrogen rate on sulphur requirements for optimum yield of canola
In Saskatchewan and other Prairie Provinces, most canola is grown in the Parkland zone where many soils are deficient or potentially deficient in S for high seed yields of canola. On soils marginally deficient in S, ...
Translocation of long-term surface-applied fertilizer P and K into a grassland soil profile
On established forage stands, P and K fertilizers are generally applied by broadcasting on the surface of the soil. Even under ideal conditions, only a small portion of the applied P and K is taken up by forage crops. ...
Effectiveness of elemental sulphur fertilizers on canola in the first year of application
Canola is the major cash crop in the Parkland zone, where many soils are deficient in plant-available S for high seed yields. Canola has high requirements for S. Deficiency of S at any growth stage can cause drastic reduction ...
