Nitrogen response and nitrogen use efficiency of high yielding canola cultivars
Several new canola varieties have much higher yield potential than those grown in the past. For example, the yield potential of highest yielding varieties listed in the Varieties of Grain Crops booklet for 2001, published ...
Effect of repeated additions of liquid swine manure and solid cattle manure on soil organic carbon
The agronomic effects of liquid swine manure and solid cattle manure application on soil nitrogen (N) and crop yield in Saskatchewan soils has been well documented (Mooleki et al. 2002b, Mooleki et al. 2004). However, the ...
Long-term tillage, straw management and N fertilizer rate effects on crop yield, N uptake and N balance sheet in a Black Chernozem
A field experiment (established in autumn 1979, with monoculture barley [1980-1990] and barley/wheat-canola-triticale-pea rotation [1991-2008]) was conducted on a Black Chernozem [Albic Agricryoll] silty clay loam soil ...
Management for optimum yield of open pollinated and hybrid canola
Newer open pollinated (O.P.) and hybrid canola varieties provide higher yield potential but the management strategies necessary to achieve optimum yield are not well understood. To better understand the levels of inputs ...
Optimizing yield and quality of canola seed with balanced fertilization in the Parkland Zone of western Canada
A number of field experiments were conducted from 1998 to 2001 (or are underway) in northeastern Saskatchewan to determine the effects of various rates (0 to 30 kg S/ha), sources (sulphate S – potassium sulphate and ammonium ...
