Landscape- and micro-scale variability of nitrogen fixation by chickpea
A landscape-scale study was conducted near Biggar, SK, to estimate N2 fixation by chickpea (Cicer arietinum) using the natural 15N abundance method. The spatial variability of N2 fixation was investigated at both the ...
A field-scale assessment of the rotation benefits of pea and canola
Producers and researchers have observed that higher cereal yields occur when oilseed and pulse crops are included in a cereal-intensive cropping system. A study was established in the spring of 1996 to compare the rotation ...
Improved inoculants for lentil
The effectiveness of the available commercial inoculants for lentil, Rhizogen, Enftx-L (Esso), Nitragin 'C', and Grip (Inotec) were compared with three inoculants which contained the rhizobia strains of 99A1, ICAR 20, and ...
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 ...
The influence of host and non-host crops on the rhizobial population of the root rhizosphere
Field pea (Pisum sativum), a new crop to the Dark Brown and Black Chernozemic Soil Zones of Saskatchewan, forms a symbiosis with Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viceae. This rhizobium is not native to the region, yet numbers ...
