Poor stand establishment resulting in lower yield is a major constraint to expanding winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) land area across the semiarid temperate regions of the northern Great Plains. We conducted a direct-seeded study at nine sites across western Canada totaling 26 environments (site-years) over three growing seasons (2011–2013) to observe the responses of the winter wheat cultivar CDC Buteo to five levels of seed treatment (i) Check–no seed treatment, (ii) tebuconozole [(RS)- 1… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

The role of genetics, growth habit, and cultural practices in the mitigation of Fusarium head blight
TLDR
Results indicated the cultivars expressing improved FHB resistance, Carberry and Emerson, were superior over susceptible cultivars, Harvest and CDC Falcon, in reducing Fusarium-damaged kernel (FDK) and deoxynivalenol (DON) levels, and displayed higher yield under high FUSarium pressure. Expand
Wheat Variety Response to Seed Cleaning and Treatment after Fusarium Head Blight Infection
TLDR
It is suggested that seed treatment can increase grain yield when using seed from a season with severe FHB infestation, but yield responses to seed cleaning are variety specific. Expand
Winter Wheat Cropping System Response to Seed Treatments, Seed Size, and Sowing Density
TLDR
Results of this study demonstrate that alternatives to canola stubble exist without introducing any impediments to stand establishment provided correct seeding depths and planting dates are adopted and stand establishment issues can also be an artifact of sowing density. Expand
A Systematic Review of Durum Wheat: Enhancing Production Systems by Exploring Genotype, Environment, and Management (G × E × M) Synergies
TLDR
This work explores how recent genetic progress and selected management innovations can lead to a resilient and transformative durum production system and closes the yield gap between genetic potential and on-farm achieved yield. Expand
Exploring Genotype × Environment × Management synergies to manage fusarium head blight in wheat
TLDR
The potential synergies that exist for FHB mitigation are explored when appropriate genetics are combined with an array of key agronomic strategies to lead to improved yield stability and quality in high-risk environments. Expand
Optimal Agronomics Increase Grain Yield and Grain Yield Stability of Ultra-Early Wheat Seeding Systems
Ultra-early seeding of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) on the northern Great Plains can increase grain yield and grain yield stability compared to current spring wheat planting systems. FieldExpand
Effects of Different Seed Coating Ratios of an Organic Acid Mixture on Yield and Quality of Bread Wheat
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of different rates of seed coating of an organic acid mixture (citric acid, glutamate, and proline) on yield and quality of wheat found no statistically significant difference in quality characteristics (protein, gluten, hardiness and sedimentation) in trials. Expand
Extending the growing season: winter cereals in western Canada1
TLDR
Looking forward, winter cereals provide the potential to take advantage of predicted western Canadian climate change scenarios and play a significant role in productivity increases through utilizing double or relay cropping practices, which are currently being developed. Expand
Productivity of winter wheat depending on presowing cultivation of seeds
TLDR
It is established that formation of elements of structure of crop and productivity of probed variety of winter wheat are influenced with the level of oxidative stress in plants. Expand

Multiple mid-Atlantic field experiments show no economic benefit to fungicide application when fungal disease is absent in winter wheat.
TLDR
The results do not support the application of strobilurin or triazole fungicides to mid-Atlantic wheat crops for "plant health" in the absence of disease, and support basing the decision to apply fungicide on observation of disease on the basis of an economic return for the input is desired. Expand
Effect of Seeding Rate and Seed Treatment Fungicides on Agronomic Performance, Fusarium Head Blight Symptoms, and DON Accumulation in Two Winter Wheats.
TLDR
As flowering period increased, FHB index and DON level decreased, suggesting that greater infection was linked to more uniform flowering. Expand
Seeding depth in relation to plant development, winter survival, and yield of No-till winter wheat
In the present study, a total of 14 no-till winter wheat field trial were seeded into standing stubble on several Saskatchewan soil types (Aridic, Typic, Vertic and Udic Haploborolls, and UdicExpand
Impact of seedbed utilization and fungicide application on severity of net blotch [Pyrenophora teres] and production of barley
TLDR
Overall, grain yield was affected by seed placement, with the spread band having slightly higher yield, especially when compared with the 30-cm distinct row spacing, but the response to seed placement did vary over year × location combinations, and with fungicide treatment. Expand
Winter Wheat Cropping System Response to Seed Treatments, Seed Size, and Sowing Density
TLDR
Results of this study demonstrate that alternatives to canola stubble exist without introducing any impediments to stand establishment provided correct seeding depths and planting dates are adopted and stand establishment issues can also be an artifact of sowing density. Expand

Are early foliar fungicide applications on durum wheat grown in southeast Saskatchewan beneficial in increasing grain productivity
TLDR
A field trial was conducted in southeast Saskatchewan to determine the impacts of single and double foliar fungicide applications at various growth stages on leaf spotting, Fusarium head blight/Fusarium-damaged kernels, deoxynivalenol concentration, dark kernel discolouration, and grain traits of durum wheat.

CDC Buteo is a hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar that is eligible for grades of the Canada Western Red Winter Wheat class. It is an intermediate height cultivar with moderate stemExpand
Wireworm Management I: Stand Protection Versus Wireworm Mortality with Wheat Seed Treatments
TLDR
Stand and yield protection provided by contemporary wheat seed treatments cannot automatically be equated with wireworm population mortality, which is an important consideration when choosing a suitable seed treatment to replace lindane, which historically provided both stand protection and wireworm reduction. Expand
The role of fungicides for effective disease management in cereal crops
TLDR
The role of fungicides, principally the triazoles, strobilurins and SDHI’s succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors, and the importance of green leaf retention (GLR) in the realization of an economic response from fungicides are reviewed. Expand
