Nitrogen and non-nitrogen benefits of lentil in the succeeding wheat crop
Incorporation of legumes in a cropping system has positive agronomic benefits to subsequent crops, particularly cereals. These benefits are associated with improved N availability to the subsequent cereal and/or non-N ...
Landscape-scale variability of nitrogen fixation and N balance of lentil
A study was conducted near Dinsmore, SK in the Dark Brown Soil Zone to determine the landscape-scale variability of N2-fixation and N balance of a lentil crop. Stable 15N isotope dilution method was used to determine ...
Nitrogen cycling in an alfalfa-bromegrass sward
Contribution of hay harvest losses and "leaf fall" to N cycling and the N nutrition of intercropped alfalfa and bromegrass
A significant amount of forage plant biomass is deposited on the ground as senescent leaves, petioles and flowers (leaf fall). In addition, a varying amount of plant biomass is lost during harvest of hay crops (hay loss). ...
Temporal availability of N to wheat in a lentil-wheat rotation
Incorporation of legumes in a cropping system has positive agronomic benefits to subsequent crops, particularly cereals. Some of these benefits are associated with improved N availability to the subsequent cereal. A study ...
Use of carbon isotope discrimination to indirectly select for improved seed yield in lentil
Carbon isotope discrimination (CID) has been proposed as a secondary trait to indirectly select for improved water use efficiency and seed yield. To determine the effectiveness of CID to indirectly select for seed yield, ...
Herbage and protein productivity of single or inter-cropped alfalfa and bromegrass under zero nitrogen fertilization
Nitrogen (N) fertilizer enhances the growth of grass in grass-legume associations and frequently inhibits N2 fixation by the legume-Rhizobium symbiosis. The cost of N fertilizer and environmental concerns related to ...
