Elemental sulfur combinations and regional waste gypsum products as alternative sulfur fertilizer sources
The potential of elemental sulfur and gypsum as viable sulfur alternatives to ammonium sulfate were evaluated. Continued concerns regarding poor product performance by elemental sulfur, and the lack of an economically ...
Effect of DDGS manure on soil and plant: preliminary results of the greenhouse study
The use of dried distillers’ grains with solubles (DDGS) in feedlot cattle diets is increasing as the bio-ethanol industry expands. Manure derived from dried distiller’s grain with solubles (DDGS) fed cattle seem to have ...
Weed control for direct-seeded pea and lentil
Field studies were conducted in 1995 and 1996 at two locations to investigate the efficacy of surface applied and shallow incorporated dinitroaniline herbicides in clay loam and sandy loam soils. Three rates of ethalfluralin ...
Assessing soil K supply capacity for wheat growth
Characterizing soil phosphorus supply on aggrading and degrading management regimes
Practical concerns regarding P fertility usually focus on crop maturity and quality. However, on highly degraded soils P supply can be so low as to limit grain yield. A study of soils treated with conservation and conventional ...
Crop yield response and recovery of nutrients applied as thin stillage in a Black Chernozem
Rapid increase in ethanol production from cereal grain to substitute fossil fuel has resulted also in different types of byproduct associated with its production. One of these byproducts is thin stillage. Thin stillage is ...
Phosphorus loading and environmental analysis in manured Saskatchewan soils
Phosphorus (P) is a key element in plant nutrition, but excessive amounts can accumulate in the soil if manure P application rates exceed crop uptake over time. Risk of potential P movement and contamination of surface ...
