Microbial community structure under various wheat-based cropping systems
The effects of cropping systems on soil biological quality are slow to develop. We sampled the soil of a 36-year old long-term experiment established on an Orthic Brown Chernozem, at Swift Current SK, in the fall of 2003, ...
Yield and protein of wheat and durum in Brown Soil Zone as affected by long-term tillage system and crop rotation
Three tillage-rotation experiments in the Brown soil zone showed that spring wheat and durum grain yield and protein were affected by tillage system, length of time in tillage system, crop sequence. During the initial 15 ...
A simple model for quantifying change in soil organic C as influenced by tillage and crop rotations on the Canadian prairies
Simulation models are required for quantifying the impact of crop rotations and tillage on soil organic C dynamics, and for aggregating C sequestration over a relatively large area. However, most current models of soil ...
Long-term tillage and crop rotation effect on soil aggregation
Tillage and cropping sequences play a key role in controlling soil aggregation. We measured water-stable aggregate (WSA), wind erodible fraction (WEF), and geometric mean diameter (GMD) for six mid to longterm (8 to 25 ...
Crop rotation and tillage impact on carbon sequestration in Saskatchewan soils
Six field experiments from the Brown to Black soil zones and from light- to heavy-textured soils in Saskatchewan were conducted to quantify C sequestration under different tillage and crop rotations. Continuous cropping ...
