Optimizing Phosphorus Fertilization and Inoculation in Chickpea and Lentil

Develop recommendations for pulse growers in optimizing rhizobial and/or P-solublizing inoculants and fertilizer P for direct-seeding of kabuli and desi chickpeas and lentils in the semiarid regions of western Canada.

IPNI-2000-CAN-SK25

The areas seeded to chickpeas in Saskatchewan have been significantly increasing. In the southwest Saskatchewan, the interest of growing chickpeas is still exploding (McVicar, 1999). There is little information available regarding how to optimize rhizobial inoculation and fertilization for the seeding systems with 1-, 2-, and 3-tanks on a seeder. Read more

Interpretive Summary

Optimizing Phosphorus Fertilization and Inoculation in Chickpea and Lentil, 2002 Saskatchewan is the world’s largest exporter of lentils and has the fastest expanding acreage of chickpeas. These two drought-tolerant pulse crops have been integrated into the farming systems in the semiarid regions of western Canada as a means of diversifying crop production and improving whole-farm economics.

Optimizing Phosphorus Fertilization and Inoculation in Chickpea and Lentil, 2001 Saskatchewan is the world’s largest exporter of lentils and has the fastest expanding acreage of chickpeas. These two drought-tolerant pulse crops have been integrated into the farming systems in the semi-arid regions of western Canada as a means of diversifying crop production and improving whole-farm economics.
