The Effects of Potassium and Chloride Nutrition on Seed Yield of Canaryseed

The effects of potassium and chloride nutrition on seed yield of canary seed, was conducted to determine the responsiveness of canary seed to K and Cl- and provide better recommendations to producers on the use of potassium chloride (KCl) in canary seed production. The project had five sites each year for three years of field research.

IPNI-2006-CAN-SK38

The following experiment will be conducted from 2007 through 2009: Fields will be selected with various levels of K and Cl at three locations, representative of the major canaryseed growing areas of Canada. Locations: Indian Head, Swift Current, and Melfort, SK Fields: 2 fields Deficient in K and Cl as rated by soil test (this will vary depending on finding suitable fields). Read more

Interpretive Summary

Effects of Potassium and Chloride Nutrition on Seed Yield of Canaryseed, 2009 The objectives of this study are to determine the responsiveness of canaryseed seed yield to K and Cl- and provide better recommendations to producers on the use of potassium chloride (KCl) in canaryseed production. In 2007, five locations were established in Saskatchewan at Melfort, Stewart Valley, Regina, and two locations near Indian Head on Vale Farms.

The Effects of Potassium and Chloride Nutrition on Seed Yield of Canaryseed in Saskatchewan, 2008 The objectives of this study are to determine the responsiveness of canaryseed seed yield to K and Cl- and provide better recommendations to producers on the use of potassium chloride (KCl) in canaryseed production. In 2007, five locations were established at Melfort, Stewart Valley, Regina, and two locations south of Indian Head on Vale Farms.

Effect of Potassium and Chloride Nutrition on the Seed Yield of Canaryseed, 2007 In 2007, this trial was conducted at five locations in Saskatchewan, near Melfort, Stewart Valley, Regina, and two locations south of Indian Head. Yields were low due to temperature and moisture stress during seed development in July and August. At both of the sites near Indian Head, a strong yield response occurred when chloride (Cl-) was applied and a moderate yield response to Cl- occurred at the Regina site.
