Feasibility of a One-pass Seeding and Fertilizing System for Winter Wheat

Evaluate the feasibility of no-till planting of winter wheat in eastern Saskatchewan.

IPNI-1995-CAN-SK14

There is a resurgence of interest in the Winter Wheat crop on the Eastern side of Saskatchewan because of: (1) the delayed harvest conditions experienced with spring crops due to cooler and wetter conditions in the past few years, (2) the problem with the wheat midge which caught many producers by surprise, especially during the last year; (3) the problems associated with tombstone is causing producers to look at other cereal crops to try and avoid the problem in southern Manitoba.

Interpretive Summary

1996

Feasibility of a One-Pass (Seeding and Fertilizer) System for Winter Wheat, 1996 Farmers in eastern Saskatchewan want to apply all their winter wheat’s N needs during the seeding operation, but are concerned the high rates of N may interfere with the cold-hardiness process. This project is studying how much and what source of N can be safely applied with the seed and if applied P will increase winter survival and recovery from low temperature injury.
