Short-rotation willow productivity and nutrient dynamics after three years of irrigation and fertilization
Purpose-grown shrub willow (Salix spp.) represents a viable bioenergy feedstock; however, there needs to be sufficient biomass production to support the economic viability of these plantations. The objective of this ...
Effect of uniformity of land application of solid cattle manure on crop yield and soil nitrate
Equipment used in Western Canada to apply solid cattle manure (SCM) are known to exhibit uneven uniformity of distribution of material. For organic bio-solid manures to be a viable supplement or alternative to chemical ...
Greenhouse gas emissions from land application of manure
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural activities such as land application of livestock manure cannot be ignored when assessing overall emissions from anthropogenic sources. The magnitude of these emissions ...
