Potential of Forages to Diversify Cropping Systems in the Northern Great Plains
cated to cultivated forage crop production in the three Canadian prairie provinces (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Cultivated forage crops are grown on almost 12 million ha on the and Alberta) and threeExpand
Frost Tolerance of Ten Seedling Legume Species at Four Growth Stages
One-week-old seedlings had the highest tolerance to freezing temperature when close to the LT 50, compared with older seedlings, and the prediction equation and LT 50 for each species have potential for predicting seedling stand loss after a spring frost, realizing that field validation of these is impossible. Expand
Factors Modifying Frost Tolerance of Legume Species
Increase in duration of freezing temperature decreased the frost tolerance of all species when freezing temperature was near the LT 50 (temperature that kills 50% of seedlings). Expand
Green-manure legume effects on soil nitrogen, grain yield and nitrogen nutrition of wheat.
Objectives of these studies were to compare seeding-year herbage and N yields of five forage legume species, determine soil NO 3 -N status in the spring following green-manure legume crops, and evaluate effects of green- manure legumes on grain yield, grain yield components, and N nutrition of the subsequent wheat crop.

Forage Legume Effects on Soil Nitrogen and Grain Yield, and Nitrogen Nutrition of Wheat
On a evalue le rendement, la teneur en azote des racines et des parties aeriennes de cinq legumineuses fourrageres; le statut de l'azote sous forme NO 3 c dans le sol au printemps suivant la recolteExpand
Water use by legumes and its effect on soil water status
Green-manure and forage legumes generally had greater water use and WUE than grain legumes, and this was associated with their longer growing season and higher dry matter production. Expand
Potential of forages to diversify cropping systems in the Northern Great Plains
Cultivated forage crops are grown on almost 12 million ha on the northern Great Plains. This paper reviews the benefits of diversifying annual crop rotations with forage crops and highlightsExpand
