Improving the Quality and Profitability of Durum Wheat through Nutrient and Disease Management

Develop soil fertility (N and P) management strategies for Durum wheat, geared to maximizing production, improving grain quality, grain protein and achieving a higher grade for the grain they produce. This should increase the acceptability of our durum in world markets.

IPNI-2002-CAN-SK32

The objective is to develop knowledge that will permit durum producers to implement crop and soil fertility management strategies geared to maximizing production, improving grain quality, grain protein and achieving a higher grade for the grain they produce. Read more

Interpretive Summary

Improving the Quality and Profitability of Durum Wheat through Nutrient and Disease Management, 2004. Optimizing yield and quality of durum wheat are key to making it a profitable crop in the semi-arid regions of western Canada. While many growers are increasing the nitrogen (N) used on durum crops, they often use only minimal rates of phosphorus (P), increasing concern that they are not making full use of the N applied.

Improving the Quality and Profitability of Durum Wheat through Nutrient and Disease Management, 2003. Optimizing yield and quality of durum wheat are key to making it a profitable crop in the semi-arid regions of western Canada. While many growers are increasing the nitrogen (N) used on their durum crops, they often use only minimal rates of phosphorus (P), increasing concern that they are not making full use of the N applied.
