Special Crop Sequencing 2
Join us March 13, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. Eastern for an interactive webinar for updates on a special crop sequencing study in Saskatchewan.

Diversified crop rotations are an important component of western Canadian cropping systems. Although crops like wheat and canola are the largest acreage crops, adding special crops into the rotation helps manage weed, disease and insect pest problems and potential resistance issues, improves soil health and maximizes profitability. However, determining which crop fits best in the cropping sequence remains a big question.

During this free 60-minute session, Bill May, crop management agronomist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Indian Head, Sask., will provide updates on his special crop sequencing study. The project includes eight different crops grown in various sequences to determine moisture and residual nitrogen (N), plant density, volunteers (counts and biomass), disease ratings, grain yield and grain quality. The eight crops are wheat, oat, canola, pea, canaryseed, hemp, quinoa and coriander. The locations – Indian Head, Melfort, Saskatoon and Swift Current – are representative of growing conditions across Saskatchewan.

This webinar has been approved for 0.5 CCA-CEU credits in Nutrient Management and 0.5 CCA-CEU credits in Crop Management.
