Delivery of an Innovative Winter Wheat Agronomic Package to Achieve Sustainable Wheat Production in the Canadian Prairies

Lead Researcher: Dr. Brian Beres (AAFC - Lethbridge)

Summary: This project will build upon the knowledge developed from previous winter wheat agronomy projects with a focus of overcoming issues related to successful integration of winter wheat into cropping systems common to Canada’s agro-ecozones.  This project aims to determine how best to manipulate agronomic factors for winter wheat which include optimum canola harvest timing, productivity and crop sequencing with winter wheat; understanding the role of growth habit in relation to differential crop and soil responses; determining how system integration and intensity effects influence winter wheat production and interactions with disease, weed and insect pests; and determining the influence of preceding break crops on succeeding winter wheat crop responses in the Canadian Prairies.
