Effect of fallow frequency on soil water conservation in the semi-arid region of Saskatchewan
The effects of fallow frequency on soil water conservation were quantified for a 40 yr (1967-2006) field experiment conducted on a medium textured Orthic Brown Chernozem (Aridic Haploboroll) in semiarid southwestern ...
Where is nitrogen going in long-term cropping systems?
Fertilizer nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) is normally low, and has led to the idea that a large proportion of N applied as fertilizer is lost from the soil. However, N balances calculated for a long-term rotation study at ...
Relationship between soil texture and soil organic carbon at small field scale
The capacity of a soil to store organic carbon is related to its particle size distribution, or soil texture, mainly because the capacity of clay particles to stabilize organic materials. A study of the relationship of ...
Managing an annual legume green manure crop for fallow replacement in southwestern Saskatchewan
Some scientists have suggested that in the Brown soil zone an annual legume green manure crop (GM) could be used as a partial-fallow replacement to protect the soil against erosion and increase its N fertility, particularly ...
