Oilseed Crops for Semiarid Cropping Systems in the Northern Great Plains
oilseed crop produced in the USA, canola is the dominant oil crop in Canada. The cool climatic conditions Oilseed crops are grown throughout the semiarid region of the characteristic of the CanadianExpand
Pulse Crop Adaptation in the Northern Great Plains
This review concludes that pulse crop area expanded from 2% of the practices and key production risks remain incompletely characterized, and comparative adaptation among the driest prairie soil–climatic zone (Aridic Haploborpulse crops remains poorly understood. Expand
Development approach and evaluation of the Nutrient Expert software for nutrient management in cereal crops
Meeting the demand for more food in the next 20-30years requires intensifying cereal cropping systems and increasing current yields to about 70-80% of the genetic yield potential. A dynamic andExpand
Seeding rate, fertilizer level and disease management effects on hybrid versus open pollinated canola (Brassica napus L.)
Emergence declined slightly at high fertilizer levels in some site-years due to fertilizer induced seedling damage, so changes in production practices may be needed to achieve optimum yield from these cultivars. Expand
Economics of Crop Diversification and Soil Tillage Opportunities in the Canadian Prairies
Annual crop production in the Canadian prairies is undergoing significant change. Traditional monoculture cereal cropping systems, which rely on frequent summer-fallowing and use of mechanicalExpand
Blackleg disease of canola mitigated by resistant cultivars and four-year crop rotations in western Canada
The results suggest that canola cultivars with strong blackleg resistance can be grown more intensively than once every 4 years with limited yield reduction, however, the increased severity of infection and amount of infested residue produced as canola rotations are intensified increases the risk of inoculum carry-over, resistance breakdown and yield loss.

Farm typologies, soil fertility variability and nutrient management in smallholder farming in Sub-Saharan Africa
Farm typologies are a useful tool to assist in unpacking and understanding the wide diversity among smallholder farms to improve targeting of crop production intensification strategies. SustainableExpand
Establishing a scientific basis for fertilizer recommendations for wheat in China: Yield response and agronomic efficiency
A new fertilizer recommendation method for wheat in China based on yield response and agronomic efficiency using datasets from 2000 to 2011 is described. Expand
Maize productivity and nutrient and water use efficiencies across soil fertility domains on smallholder farms in Zimbabwe
Abstract Strategic targeting of scarce nutrient resources by smallholder farmers on different field types has remained poor partly due to knowledge limitations, resulting in inefficient use of theExpand
Fertilizer recommendation for maize in China based on yield response and agronomic efficiency
Abstract A generic but flexible and location-specific fertilizer recommendation method is necessary due to inappropriate fertilization in China. A new fertilizer recommendation method, NutrientExpand
