Genetic variation for nitrogen use efficiency in Canada Western Red Spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under conventional and organic management systemsDownload
Improved nitrogen use efficiency in cereal-based agricultural systems can contribute to increasing grain production while reducing agriculture-related pollution caused by nitrogen leaching, volatilization and denitrification. Organic agriculture differs to conventional systems in terms of in...
Soil microbial communities and grain quality as affected by spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar and grain mixtures in organic and conventional management systemsDownload
It may be possible to tailor crop management to encourage diverse soil microbial communities and beneficial microorganisms, and produce high quality food products. Studies were carried out in 2005-2007 to evaluate the impact of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar choice and crop...
The soil microbial community and grain micronutrient concentration of historical and modern hard red spring wheat cultivars grown organically and conventionally in the Black soil zone of the Canadian prairiesDownload
Abstract: Micronutrient deficiencies in the diet of many people are common and wheat is a staple food crop, providing a carbohydrate and micronutrient source to a large percentage of the world’s population. We conducted a field study to compare five Canadian red spring wheat cultivars (released...
Weeds promote greater arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi benefit in organically managed spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivation systemDownload
Weeds appear to enhance soil microbial benefit in organic agricultuer. We examined effects of weed and microbial effects on spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield and quality under organic management systems. Canadian spring wheat cultivars were planted in weed-free and weedy treatments in...
