  • Faba bean agronomy to enhance yield, hasten maturity, and reduce disease

Oilseeds:

  • Canola seed safety and yield response to novel phosphorus sources in SK soils
  • Sclerotinia risk assessment tools for Spray Decision Support in Canola
  • Flax response to non-traditional nitrogen fertilizer management strategies
  • Hemp seeding date demonstration for grain production
  • Camelina: A new crop options for NE Saskatchewan

Cereals:

  • Top-dressing nitrogen fertilizer on frozen or snow covered soils in SK
  • Crop rotation benefits of annual forages preceding spring cereals
  • Can farmer-saved seed of wheat perform as well as certified seed?
  • Increasing Wheat protein with Post-emergent applications of UAN vs. Dissolved Urea
  • Oat varietal response to seed date
  • Inter-row spraying and wicking of non-selective herbicides to control wild oats in oats
