New Projects in 2019

Projects in place for the 2019 field season include:

Pulses:

  • Production management strategies to improve field pea root health in aphanomyces contaminated soils
  • Enhanced fertilizer management for optimizing yield and protein in field pea
  • Re-cropping faba bean after wheat herbicides
  • Integration of faba bean seed rate and pre/post herbicides
  • Timing of pre/post treatments for weed control in faba bean
  • Tolerance and weed control efficacy of faba bean to pre/post combination

Oilseeds:

  • Are we measuring the right soil N-pool for nitrogen fertilizer applications in Canola?
  • Pre-harvest herbicide and desiccation options for straight-combining canola: effects on plant and seed dry-down, yield, and seed quality
  • Prairie North Co-op canola variety trial

Spring Cereals:

  • CWRS wheat varietal response to Manipulator
  • Input study: intensive wheat management
  • Are we accessing the right soil N pool for fertilizer recommendations in wheat?
  • Can farmer-save seed of wheat perform as well as certified seed?
  • Improved integrated disease management for oats in Saskatchewan
  • Oat varietal response to seeding rate and nitrogen product and rate to reduce lodging and hasten maturity
  • Maintaining acceptable test weights for milling oats
  • Malt vs. feed barley management

Winter Cereals:

  • Winter wheat response to nitrogen placement and timing options
  • The essentials: phosphorus application in fall rye

Mixed Crop:

  • Cover crop mixes as a solution for saline areas
  • Oat/Pea intercrop demonstration
  • Crop Sequencing of large acreage crops and special crops
  • FHB risk modelling project

Field Scale:

  • An on-farm approach to evaluate the interaction of management practices and environment on FHB development in wheat

Forage Legumes:

  • Red and Alsike Clover in rotation with wheat
  • Forage Legume varieties for seed and biomass yield
  • Winter annual weed control in red clover
  • Red Clover seeding rates
  • Herbicide screening for annual weed control in established red and alsike clover

Forage Grasses:

  • Forage grass varieties for seed and biomass yield
  • Fertility and PGR in Annual Ryegrass for seed production
  • Herbicide options in Annual Ryegrass for seed production

All reports will be posted as soon as they are available.

Joint Annual Field Day 2019

Thank you to everyone who came to our Annual Field Day July 24th, 2019! We hope to see all of you and more at next years event. Details to be posted at a later date.

Also a huge thank you to this year’s event sponsor:

Morris Sebulsky Bequeth

Thank you to SaskCanola for selecting the 8 Agri-ARM sites to be the recipients of the Morris Sebulsky Bequeth and generously matching his donation!

This donation, among others, allows us to update our equipment. At NARF, these funds will be put towards the purchase of a new Wintersteiger plot combine.

With the purchase of a newer combine, it will allows us to enjoy some conveniences such as a closed cab, and the ability to take sub-samples from the plot as we harvest. This will decrease the amount of material that we have to process in the winter, allowing for us to publish results faster, and benefit producers better!

Stay tuned to see pictures and posts about our new equipment line up!
