Crop delineation using hybrid classification procedures: a case study in Scott, Saskatchewan
Currently, crop insurance companies rarely work in co-operation with remote sensing scientists as they believe that the data quality and resolution are too low to accurately delineate crop areas and predict yields. This ...
Urea treatment affects safe rates of seed placed nitrogen in Saskatchewan
Placing urea in close proximity to seed can cause seedling damage resulting in poor crop establishment. Plant densities are often well below the optimum, and plants that do emerge can exhibit poor vigor. Several strategies ...
Fertilizer-N management and nitrous oxide emissions from four sites in Saskatchewan
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a powerful greenhouse gas that also depletes stratospheric ozone. The use of fertilizer-N for agricultural purposes is thought to contribute significantly to Canadian anthropogenic N2O emissions. ...
Coated canola seed
Increasing yield and profit by straight-cutting canola
Straight combining canola (Brassica napus) can save producers time, fuel costs, and equipment wear. Research was undertaken at three locations to determine if straight combining shatter losses would be reduced sufficiently ...
Relationship between soil texture and soil organic carbon at small field scale
The capacity of a soil to store organic carbon is related to its particle size distribution, or soil texture, mainly because the capacity of clay particles to stabilize organic materials. A study of the relationship of ...
Yield of continuous spring wheat with several combinations of stubble, weed control, and fertility management
Studies to evaluate stubble management, weed control, and fertility treatments applied in combination in a continuous spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) rotation were conducted over a seven year period (1983-89) at Scott, ...
The long-term agronomic and economic effects of crop rotations in western Canada
Agriculture Canada Research Stations in western Canada have conducted more than 68 long-term crop rotation experiments since the early 1900's; twenty of these are still ongoing. A committee of scientists, representing all ...
Indian Head lentil as a green manure substitute for summerfallow
Indian Head lentil, a small black seeded cultivar, can fix substantial amounts of nitrogen while providing a dense ground cover. It has been promoted as a green manure alternative to conventional summerfallow. To evaluate ...
