Factors Influencing Wheat Yield and Variability : Evidence from Manitoba , Canada

  title={Factors Influencing Wheat Yield and Variability : Evidence from Manitoba , Canada},
  author={Richard Carew and Elwin G. Smith and Cynthia A. Grant},
Production functions to explain regional wheat yields have not been studied extensively in the Canadian prairies. The objective of this study is to employ a Just-Pope production function to examine the relationship between fertilizer inputs, soil quality, biodiversity indicators, cultivars qualifying for Plant Breeders’ Rights (PBR), and climatic conditions on the mean and variance of spring wheat yields. Using regional-level wheat data from Manitoba, Canada, model results show nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
