Interpretive Summary

2001

The Effect of Potassium and Sulfur on the Yield Variability of Canaryseed, 2001 The biggest production problem faced by farmers growing canaryseed is the year-to-year variability in seed yield. The cause of this fluctuation in yield is not well understood. One aspect that has not been addressed is the effect of potassium (K) and sulfur (S) on yield. An experiment was designed to evaluate K and S additions on the yield of canaryseed at five locations in Saskatchewan.

The cause of this fluctuation in yield is not known. One aspect that has not been addressed is the effect of K and S on yield. An experiment was designed to evaluate K and S additions at five locations in Saskatchewan. The results from the first year of this two-year project were mixed.
