Fertility/Climate/Environment

Research Topic: Fertility/Climate/Environment

  • Project Status: Completed
  • Principal Investigators: Bill May, Indian Head Agricultural Research Foundation (IHARF)
  • Project Dates: May 2016 - Febuary 2017
  • Abstract/Summary: This project aimed to: 1) validate, under local conditions, research showing that oat requires moderate amounts of N and that test weight declines as N rate is increased; 2) expose growers to new oat cultivars that may be better than cultivars currently grown in the trial area; and, 3) determine if the test weight of current oat cultivars vary in the stability of their test weight as the N rate is increased. Four oat cultivars were chosen specific to each location (two popular and two new cultivars with potential). N rates used (kg N/ha): 40, 60, 80, and 120.

  • Project Status: Completed
  • Principal Investigators: Mike Hall
  • Project Dates: April 1, 2023 – Feb 28, 2024
  • Abstract/Summary: This project aims to determine the yield and test weight response of oats to 15% and 30% reductions in optimum rates of N. The specific rates of soil plus fertilizer N tested will be 125 lb/ac, 106 lb/ac, 88 lb/ac and no applied N. Two varieties of oats will be used in this project – CS Camden and CDC Arborg.

  • Project Status: Completed
  • Principal Investigators: Northeast Agriculture Research Foundation (NARF).
  • Project Dates: April 2022-February 2023
  • Abstract/Summary: The purpose of this demonstration is to highlight the impact of fertilizer placement and rate on oat establishment, seed yields and quality. Oat response to various macronutrients has been investigated, and research has shown that oats are responsive to additions of nitrogen and sometimes phosphate. Prior research has not included different fertilizer placement methods. Some research in this area has been done on wheat, showing different responses and impacts from various placements. The intention is to demonstrate different fertilizer placements at seeding, and determine where or not these affect plant stands, yields, or crop quality. This project is funded by ADOPT.

  • Project Status: Completed
  • Principal Investigators: Mike Hall, through AgriARM
  • Project Dates: April 2022 – Feb 2023
  • Abstract/Summary: The objective of this project is to demonstrate the response of a modern oat varieties to the historically recommended rate of 60 lb N /ac against the more recently suggested recommendation of 90 lb N/ac, and to determine the relative importance of adding phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and sulphur (S) for these different nitrogen (N) recommendations in eastern Saskatchewan. The influence of treatment on oat yield, lodging and test weight will be determined. This project is funded by the ADOPT program.

  • Project Status: Completed
  • Principal Investigators: Dr. Elwin Smith and Dr. Danny LeRoy
  • Project Dates: April 2018 – October 2022
  • Abstract/Summary: While some short rotations are currently profitable, the lack of diversification in a cropping system can be detrimental to maintaining crop yield and profitability. This study will look at determining the net return and the variability of net return, associated with cropping systems of different rotation length and diversity of crops. This project has now been completed.
