The Frequency and Persistence of Volunteer Canola (Brassica napus) in Québec Cropping Systems*
The presence of volunteer canola is becoming a significant agro-ecological concern, given the large-scale use of herbicide-tolerant varieties in some areas. Our goal was to estimate the frequency and… Expand
Assessing the Representativeness and Repeatability of Test Locations for Genotype Evaluation
The success of a plant breeding program depends on many factors; one crucial factor is the selection of suitable breeding and testing locations. A test location must be discriminating so that genetic… Expand
Crop rotation, cultivar resistance, and fungicides/biofungicides for managing clubroot (Plasmodiophora brassicae) on canola
Abstract Select biofungicides and fungicides, used alone or with cultivar resistance or crop rotation, were assessed for their potential in integrated management of clubroot disease. The synthetic… Expand
Identifying essential test locations for oat breeding in eastern Canada.
The oat (Avena sativa L.) breeding program at the Eastern Cereal and Oilseed Research Centre of Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada has the responsibility to breed new oat cultivars for producers in… Expand
Forage Nonstructural Carbohydrates and Nutritive Value as Affected by Time of Cutting and Species
Total nonstructural carbohydrates (TNC) provide readily fermentable energy to rumen microbes and their increased concentration in forages improves N use efficiency in dairy cows (Bos taurus). This… Expand
Impact de l’hernie des crucifères [Plasmodiophora brassicae] sur la productivité et la qualité du canola
Clubroot, a disease caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae, first appeared in canola fields in Quebec in 1997. The objective of this project was to assess the impact of a soil infested with P. brassicae… Expand

Tocopherols concentration and stability in early maturing soybean genotypes
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is an important source of tocopherols which have health-benefi cial properties. A study was conducted to determine tocopherols concentration and stability in early… Expand
Response of Oat Genotypes to Fusarium Head Blight in Eastern Canada
Recent investigations in northern Europe and western Canada suggested that mycotoxins caused by Fusarium head blight (FHB) could be a potential problem for oat (Avena sativa L.) production and oat… Expand
