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 13 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 D. B Fowler( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 13 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
A survey of water use and related cultural practices on irrigated farms in Saskatchewan by Saskatchewan( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study surveyed irrigation water use and cultural practices for the area around the South Saskatchewan River project. Characteristics such as irrigated acreage, amount of water applied, crop mixes, yields, the timing of water application, and the level of fertilizer are reported. Factors that may lead to an explanation of 1989 yields are also reported
Genes for rust resistance in wheat by Saskatchewan( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the project described in this report was to provide wheat breeders with information on the inheritance of rust resistance and the sources of resistance that they need to produce resistant varieties. Work carried out in the project included obtaining rust-resistant wheat varieties from many countries, transferring their genes for resistance singly to a susceptible genotype, testing the resulting lines with either 13 races of stem rust or ten races of leaf rust, and development of many lines that are resistant to all of the races of one type of rust
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 13 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
Animal disease diagnostics : final report by Greg D. J Appleyard( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summarizes a project to develop & validate new or improved animal disease diagnostic tests that are needed by the Saskatchewan livestock industry. Diseases for which tests have been investigated or developed include Newcastle disease virus, equine influenza, swine erysipelas, bovine viral diarrhoea, and Mycoplasma diseases
Dry bean agronomy : optimizing the dryland production system by Steve Shirtliffe( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to refine the narrow-row agronomic production practice for dry bean production in the thin black soil zone of Saskatchewan. The report describes four experiments conducted in this study. These experiments investigated the following: the effect of nitrogen fertilizer and rhizobium inoculation on yield & maturity of the dry bean cultivar CDC Pintium; the interaction of seeding rate & nitrogen fertilizer on dry bean yield & maturity; the effect of seed fungicide on emergence & yield in dry bean (cultivars CDC Pintium, CDC Expresso, & Envoy); and the effect of tillage system on dry bean yield & maturity (cultivars CDC Pintium & Envoy)

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes & presents results of field experiments conducted to determine the effect of seeding management & stubble management on the productivity of canola & mustard in the brown soil zone of Saskatchewan. The main goals of the research were to: compare yield & water use efficiencies of different canola & mustard cultivars when seeded on different dates (late fall, early & late spring); and compare microclimate, and yield & water use efficiencies, of Argentine canola seeded into stubble of various heights (cultivated, short, & tall). Results are presented for experiments conducted in the growing seasons from 1998 to 2002
Chemical studies of strategies for overcoming bovine copper deficiency : final report by Saskatchewan( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project is the latest in a series designed to examine the underlying, chemical, causes of bovine copper deficiency, a problem in many parts of Saskatchewan. This deficiency is caused not by insufficient copper in the diet, but by the presence of thiomolybdates (TMs), which "tie up" the copper so that it cannot be utilised by the animal. TMs are formed from sulfur, (usually in well water) and molybdenum compounds in the feed. The authors have previously developed a computer "simulation" of the mix of copper species in the normal (TM-free) rumen. This has now been extended to allow for predictions involving copper administered in different forms--complexed to different amino acids, or to EDTA, for instance. It is possible to add copper in all these forms, and predict the effect on the copper species present, including the effect of a different distribution among the Volatile Fatty Acids (mimicking different feed regimens), and different ruminal pH.--Document
Economic analysis report : comparative advantage for supply managed commodities by Saskatchewan( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comparative advantage is an economic theory that attempts to explain why and how trading economies (such as provinces or territories within Canada) specialize in certain industries. This report intends to develop a functional framework for quota allocation based on comparative advantage in the production of supply-managed goods; determine if a comparative advantage exists for Saskatchewan supply managed commodities relative to other parts of Canada; and identify regulatory and legal hurdles to the production of supply-managed commodities outside of the supply managed system for export and identify options for addressing those hurdles. The study includes a review of economics literature on the definition of comparative advantage and relevant applied research.--Includes text from document
Evaluation of newly developed potato clones for production in Saskatchewan : final report by Douglas R Waterer( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reports on Saskatchewan's participation in the 1993 and 1994 Prairie Regional Potato Trials, an ongoing project that develops and tests potato clones or cultivars with characteristics required by the potato industry on the prairies. The project conducted trials at two sites in Saskatoon and Outlook, allowing testing of the cultivars under different soil and infestation conditions. The variability between the 1993 and 1994 growing seasons also allowed for thorough evaluation of new and more advanced lines under typical prairie growing conditions
