Chloride's Role in Maximizing Wheat Variety Performance

To understand the interactions of major wheat varieties with chloride fertilization, and evaluate effects of chloride fertilization on wheat plant pathology, plant maturity and thousand kernel weight. Also to increase awareness of dealers and growers of the affects of appropriate chloride fertilization on wheat yield and profitability.

IPNI-1995-CAN-MB8

Different varieties of wheat respond differently to Cl fertilization. However, the Cl responsiveness of many specific varieties is unknown. This project, is part of a regional Cl trial that includes sites in Texas, Kansas, the Dakota’s and Manitoba. The project is evaluating the Cl response of 15 varieties of spring wheat. First results have confirmed that response is highly variable among varieties and on different soil types. Read more

Interpretive Summary

Wheat Cultivar Response to Chloride Fertilizer (Multi-Regional Project), 1999 Understanding the genetic variability in spring wheat cultivar response to Cl fertilization will be of great importance to farmers attempting to optimize crop yield response to fertilizer additions. As part of a Great Plains project evaluating winter and spring wheat variety responses to Cl, spring wheat cultivars common to western Canada were evaluated on two soil types over four years near Brandon, Manitoba.

Chlorides Role in Maximizing Wheat Variety Performance, 1998 Not all varieties of spring and winter are sensitive to Cl deficiency. Some respond to applied Cl while others do not. The problem is, it is not known which varieties are responsive. This study has been part of a large North American Cl trial investigating varietal response to Cl fertilization.

Chlorides Role in Maximizing Wheat Variety Performance, 1997 Response of wheat to Cl fertilization has been well documented, but not all varieties, or cultivars, respond equally and not all responsive varieties are known. This project is part of a large regional study that is evaluating how different varieties of spring and winter wheat react to applied Cl. Chloride was applied to 15 cultivars of spring wheat on two different textured soils.

Chlorides Role in Maximizing Wheat Variety Performance, 1996 Different varieties of wheat respond differently to Cl fertilization. However, the Cl responsiveness of many specific varieties is unknown. This project, is part of a regional Cl trial that includes sites in Texas, Kansas, the Dakota’s and Manitoba. The project is evaluating the Cl response of 15 varieties of spring wheat. First results have confirmed that response is highly variable among varieties and on different soil types.
