Chemical studies of organic trace metal supplements : final report by Robert Stephen Reid( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruminant dietary metal deficiencies are traditionally corrected by supplementing the diet with inorganic salts. Chelated minerals containing metals bound to a binding agent or ligand have recently been marketed as better alternatives. The project reported in this document explored the supposed chemical basis for the action of chelated minerals to help assess whether the substantial additional costs involved are justified. Chelated minerals are thought to be more bioavailable as they are presumed to be stable and could therefore be absorbed intact. Studies focused on the copper-lysine chelate. Likely binding sites on the animal were identified, strengths of the various binding interactions were measured, and computer predictions of copper distribution were then made. Direct observation of this distribution was performed using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Results indicate the relation between final copper distribution and the means of copper administration
Regional testing and development of winter wheat cultivars by Saskatchewan( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summarizes a continuing project to identify winter wheat cultivars with regional adaptation in Saskatchewan, to conduct final tests required for cultivar registration, to develop a data base for reliable regional cultivar recommendation, and to provide regional winter wheat demonstrations. In the period reported, widespread adoption of one strain was evident, two other cultivars with improved grain protein concentration were released, and a strain with improved rust resistance was registered
Disease elimination by tissue culture and testing of potato breeding clones : final report by Dermot Lynch( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A breeding project was initiated in 1979 using material selected out of crosses made at Lethbridge, early generation selections from the Canadian National Breeding Program, and advanced introductions from programs in the United States. The products of the breeding program were tested in a series of trials for stability and to complete registration requirements. To ensure that disease factors do not confound the evaluation of material included in the regional trials, a comprehensive program to control disease using tissue culture and serological and chemical testing was an essential and integral part of the breeding project. This report gives the results of the tissue culture testing

Genes for rust resistance in wheat by University of Saskatchewan( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes progress in research conducted to provide information about the inheritance of stem & leaf rust resistance in durum & bread wheat. Research activities included transferring individual genes from resistant parents into susceptible varieties by back-crossing. Lines containing single genes were then tested with either 9 to 13 races of stem rust or 10 races of leaf rust to assess their resistance. The research has isolated a number of previously unidentified genes for rust resistance, some of which have been transferred from wild relatives of wheat. The lines produced can be used in wheat breeding, identification of rust races, and other wheat research
Evaluation of the NRC 1996 feed requirements for wintering beef cows -- are we over-feeding our cows?, phase 2 Lacombe Alberta : final report( Book )

Results are presented for experiments conducted in the growing seasons from 1998 to 2002
Potential for Saskatchewan seed potato exports to northwest United States by Saskatchewan( Book )

6 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent work indicates that northern grown Saskatchewan seed potatoes have more vigour and yield than seed grown in the United States. This study assessed the market potential and factors necessary to penetrate the Pacific Northwest seed potato market. This report describes the Alberta and Saskatchewan seed potato industry and their production costs and returns, markets in the northwestern U.S., including Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California; and the factors necessary to penetrate the chosen market, including the need for an identity, confirmation of added vigour, an umbrella sales agency for seed lot testing, strong promotional efforts and establishment of potato processing in Saskatchewan
The Saskatchewan all risk crop insurance program : an evaluation of land use, technology adoption and participation by W. P Weisensel( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing concern that the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance program inhibits soil conservation and slows the adoption of new technology. Differences in regional participation rates are also a concern. This report examines and explains the influence of crop insurance on management decisions and the differences in participation rates in various regions of the province. A conceptual model was developed that explains how a general crop insurance program affects farm management decisions, particularly the decision to participate, as well as the traditional principle-agent problem of moral hazard (changing farm practices because of crop insurance) and adverse selection (participators tend to have slightly lower yields). To test the hypotheses of the model, survey data was collected from 250 producers in four separate regions. Both participants and non-participants were contacted, allowing a comparison of socio-economic data and farm practices
