Impact of crop rotation and tillage on some soil quality characteristics
An 11-yr rotation-tillage experiment conducted on a coarse-textured, Brown Chernozemic soil at Cantaur, southwestern Saskatchewan, was used to demonstrate the beneficial effects of reducing cropping frequency and tillage ...
A bioenergy success story: the energy savings implications of the increase in legumes in rotations since 1990
The energy savings achieved by the increase in field peas and lentil production in western Canada between 1990 and 1995 were calculated to be 4.46 PJ (petajoules) per year, equivalent to 1.7 % of the total energy costs of ...
Simulating the dynamics of soil organic matter in long-term rotation plots of Saskatchewan and Alberta
This study used the Century soil organic matter (SOM) model to simulate the dynamics in soil organic carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus in long-term crop rotation studies established in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Observed ...
