Field pea (Pisum sativum), canola (Brassica napus), turnips (Brassica rapa) and Berseem clover (Trifolium alexandrinum) were grown in north central Alberta to assess their potential yield and quality and to evaluate their utilization and preference by white-tailed deer. Herbage DM yield, crude...
Understanding the role of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on postpartum reproductive function and embryo development in dairy cowsDownload
The objectives of this work were to investigate the influence of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on feed intake, calf birth weight, maternal and neonatal fatty acid profiles, milk production, postpartum reproductive function, early embryonic development and its transcriptome profile in...
Type-1 Brassica napus Diacylglycerol Acyltransferases: Enzyme Characterization and Molecular Tools for Increasing Storage Lipid Production in YeastDownload
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) catalyzes the final step in the acyl-CoA- dependent biosynthesis of triacylglycerol (TAG). The level of DGAT activity may have a substantial effect on the flow of carbon into TAG in many organisms. In plants, yeast, and animals, two families of...
Transcriptomic responses in spring canola carrying clubroot resistance introgressed from rutabaga or “Mendel”Download
Canola provides ~15% of the total global vegetable oil supply and is an important crop contributing about $26.7 billion to Canada’s economy. Canola production has been threatened by clubroot disease caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae Woronin, which in extreme case can result complete crop...
The effects of soil and plant nutrients on the oviposition preference, larval performance and spatial dynamics of Ceutorhynchus obstrictus and its parasitoidsDownload
The effects of nitrogen and sulfur fertilization on the oviposition, feeding preferences, and larval performance of Ceutorhynchus obstrictus (Marsham) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) on Brassica napus L. were examined in a series of laboratory experiments. The associations between C. obstrictus...
The Impact of Clubroot Resistant Canola Cultivars on Plasmodiophora brassicae Resting Spore Concentrations in the SoilDownload
The soilborne pathogen Plasmodiophora brassicae Woronin, causal agent of clubroot of canola (Brassica napus L.), is difficult to manage due to the longevity of its resting spores, its ability to produce large amounts of inoculum, and the prohibitive costs of effective fungicides. The cropping of...
Sensitivity of Leptosphaeria maculans isolates to pyraclostrobin and assessment of fungicide efficacy in the management of blackleg of canolaDownload
Blackleg (Leptosphaeria maculans) disease is endemic to canola (Brassica napus) worldwide. With shortened canola rotations and increasing levels of blackleg in Alberta, Canada, growers may look to fungicides as an attractive disease management tool. However, the improper or intensive use of...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs, which are known to regulate plant responses to abiotic stresses, such as Cold Stress (CS) and during normal growth and development. In Brassica napus (canola), miRNAs regulate various developmental processes and responses to metal stress however;...
Hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD) is a promising alternative fuel due to its excellent low-temperature properties, cetane number, and similarity to fossil diesel. Using Alberta as a basis, data-intensive techno-economic models and life cycle assessment models were developed to...
Diverse crop rotations are an important part of sustainable agricultural systems. More information is needed in Alberta on the effects of adding pulse crops to current rotations. This experiment investigated the effects of ‘Snowbird’ tannin-free faba bean (Vicia faba L.), ‘Arabella’ narrow-leafed...
