The focus of this study is to examine the risk and return trade-offs for various crop rotations and tillage systems. The geographic area represented in this study will be that contained within four soil, and five climatic zones within the Province of Alberta. The predominant crops grown in these...
An Annotated Bibliography of Crop Rotation and Tillage Literature With Special Emphasis on the Canadian PrairiesDownload
This annotated bibliography was compiled during research project 94-092 funded by Farming for the Future. Some of these references were cited in the research and others simply provided background information. The references shown here are not meant to be a comprehensive listing of literature...
Nitrogen and Sulfur Fertilization Effects on Carbon Sequestration and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in S-deficient SoilsDownload
Depending on management practices, agricultural soils have the potential to be both a source and a sink of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Long-term fertilization and crop rotation management practices are considered to have an impact on carbon (C) sequestration and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. Sulfur...
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...
Monte Carlo simulation was used to examine the on-farm economics from adoption of Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) on five representative Alberta cropping farms. Adoption of shelterbelts, buffer strips, residue management, and the addition of annual and perennial forages, field peas, and...
