Evaluation of different Nitrogen decision guides in fertilizing Corn (2016)

Crop Types: Corn

Centre(s): PESAI

Manitoba Agriculture nitrogen rate guidelines for corn were developed before 1990 and are out-of-date for current yield levels. Recently North Dakota State University (NDSU) has released N rate guidelines for corn and a number of in-crop scouting measures can be used to assess sufficiency and need for more N. The following study was initiated with the objective to evaluate a number of N decision guides for suitability in fertilizing corn in Manitoba.

Manitoba Corn Growers Silage corn variety Evaluation (2016-2018)

Crop Types: Corn

Centre(s): PESAI

In Western Canada, barley is still the major silage crop. However, corn acres are also going up in the recent years. Statistical Canada predicted a 38% rise in corn acres in 2017 in Manitoba as compared to 2016. The difference in producing corn silage in the environment of the prairie of Western Canada than in southern Ontario and the U.S. Corn Belt is we have a shorter growing season. Now with the short-season corn varieties available, producers have more options to grow silage corn. Manitoba Corn Growers Association coordinates varietal evaluation of potential new silage corn varieties in the province. These varietal trials are done at different sites in the province and Arborg is one of the site. This trial was conducted to see production potential of different silage corn varieties in Interlake region.
