Differential aluminum tolerance of high-yielding, early maturing Canadian wheat cultivars and germplasmDownload
Twenty-eight spring wheat (Triticum aestivum) cultivars were tested for tolerance to aluminum (Al) using solution culture techniques. Fourteen of these cultivars were also grown in the fietd under two different management levels, Conventional and Intensive Crop Management (ICM), to determine...
Competition with weeds decreases crop yields globally. Breeding for competitive ability against elevated weed pressure can be difficult because the selection for specific traits which contribute to competitive ability may result in yield losses. The widely studied International Triticeae Mapping...
Estimation of Source- and Quality-Differentiated Import Demand Under Aggregate Import Quota: An Application to Japan's WheatDownload
Since a seminal work by Armington (1969), estimating source-differentiated import demand has become a useful tool in applied international trade research. Trade policy evaluation and simulation require reliable estimates of the responsiveness of import demand to international price changes....
This paper reports on a review of literature in the form of academic papers and published research on ethical and consumer issues for GM crops in North America, with particular emphasis on GM wheat. The issues raised in these papers and the findings and arguments posed by the authors are...
Differential exudation of polypeptides by roots of aluminum-resistant and aluminum-sensitive cultivars of Triticum aestivum L. in response to aluminum stressDownload
Cultivars of Triticum aestivum differing in resistance to Al were grown under aseptic conditions in the presence and absence of Al and polypeptides present in root exudates were collected, concentrated, and analyzed by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Upon exposure 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...
Intercropping systems offer potential benefits relative to monocultures of increased crop yields and improved pest control through physical, chemical, or behavioural interference and the enhancement of natural enemy populations, prompting increased predation and parasitism. Intercrops of canola...
QTL mapping and genetic studies in the Attila x CDC Go spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) mapping populationDownload
Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most important staple crops in the world. Wheat breeders in Canada primarily aim to develop cultivars with favored agronomic traits such as short stature, early maturity, high yielding, preferred end-use quality such as high protein content, and at...
Mapping of genomic regions associated with agronomic traits and resistance to diseases in Canadian spring wheatDownload
Wheat breeders, in addition to phenotypic selection, employ molecular markers in their programs for different purposes, including parental selection, quality control, analysis of advanced lines (cultivars), on genetic purity and identity, and for markers assisted selection. In the first study of...
