Are two cultivars better than one? Performance of leafed and semi-leafless pea mixtures under weedy conditions
There is a need for improved tools to minimize yield losses due to weeds for organic field pea production. Cultivar mixtures may improve the ability of organic pulse crops to suppress weeds and maintain yields in the ...
Effect of replacing corn grain by wheat-based dried distillers’ grains with solubles dietary energy and protein value in cattle
The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of replacing corn grain portion of the diet by wheat-based dried distillers’ grains with solubles (wDDGS) on feeding value for ruminants by chemical fractionation, ...
Effects of plant derived smoke solutions on seed germination of forages
The effects of aqueous plant-derived smoke solutions on the germination of 10 native and tame forages were tested under laboratory conditions. Smoke solutions were produced by slowly burning wheat straw or prairie hay and ...
