Review of wildlife disease status in game animals in North America by Saskatchewan( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managing Saskatchewan rangeland( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Farming to Win II by Saskatchewan( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Farming to Win program utilised a business group concept to deliver a 4 day program on business management skills to Saskatchewan farmers. Participants in the program received standardised instruction and individual assistance to create a "goal directed farm business management plan" for their farm business. Participants also learned how to identify and set short and long term goals, use financial statements, and how to integrate production, management and marketing plans. This report reviews the program

Genes for rust resistance in wheat by 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
Chemical studies of organic trace metal supplements : final report by Robert Stephen Reid( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 10 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
Growing flax by Saskatchewan( Book )

Guide to better on-farm demonstrations by Saskatchewan( Book )

Disease elimination by tissue culture and testing of potato breeding clones : final report by Dermot Lynch( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Domestic fruit development program : grower-assisted fruit breeding and value-added research : final report by Bob Bors( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project emphasized value-added processing and the selection of superior genotypes for processing needs. It includes four components: value added research; establishment of mechanically-harvested demonstration orchards; selection and distribution of superior clones for commercial production; and breeding and distribution of seedlings to growers.--Document

Development of hard white bread wheat with sprouting resistance : final report by Pierre Hucl( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spring wheat grown in Saskatchewan has traditionally been red-grained. A shift in markets to the Pacific Rim has resulted in the need for white-grained cultivars, but white wheat germplasm has traditionally had poor pre-harvest sprouting resistance, presenting a drawback for the potential development of white wheat cultivars adapted to Saskatchewan. Seed dormancy is the main factor responsible for conferring pre-harvest sprouting tolerance to wheat grain. This report describes a project to develop hard white bread wheat cultivars with high seed dormancy levels. Standard small-plot techniques were used to evaluate hard white wheat experimental lines. Results of breeding efforts that started with testing of 280 advanced lines are presented
The use of high lipid feeds to meet energy needs of dairy and feedlot cattle : final report by John James McKinnon( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this project is to determine the value of whole sunflower, canola, and flax seed in dairy and beef rations. The nutritional significance of these oil seeds lies in their high energy density which may improve performance of cattle and also may improve the fatty acid composition of the fat for human health. Knowledge gained from this research will enable greater understanding of the effects of an unsaturated fat source on performance and product quality of lactating and growing cattle. From the point of view of providing energy and protein to high performance ruminant animals, high lipid feeds such as flax and sunflower have proven to be of equal or superior to conventional feeds
Straw particle board by Saskatchewan( Book )

Dry bean agronomy : optimizing the dryland production system by Steve Shirtliffe( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes & presents results of a study to develop a dry-land agronomic system for growing dry beans in the thin black soil zone of Saskatchewan. Components of the research are: traditional plot-based agronomic research in order to answer specific agronomic questions; and working with producers to develop the dry bean agronomic system. The study examined the following: the effect of seeding system on dry bean yield, height, & maturity; the effect of nitrogen fertilizer on yield & nitrogen fixation in dry bean; the effect of harvest technology on harvest efficiency; and the effect of seeding rate on the yield of two dry bean cultivars

Development of molecular markers for beta-glucan content in barley : final report by Ravindra Nath Chibbar( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beta-glucan is a complex polysaccharide found in the barley endosperm. Barley with low beta-glucan is preferred both by the brewing and animal feed industry. However for human consumption barley with high beta-glucan is preferred because of its health benefits. The objective of this project was to identify barley chromosomal regions associated with beta-glucan concentration. A genetic map (1,059 cM) was constructed with 680 DNA-based markers distributed over the seven chromosomes. A region on chromosome 7 was associated with beta-glucan concentration. The barley genetic map developed in this project can be used for other traits of interest to barley improvement programs."--Document
