Five newly released and two Eastern European winter wheat
cultivars were grown under five different seeding rates (80, 160,
240, 320, 400 seeds per m²). Four of these newly released cultivars
were grown at three different locations which have different environmental
conditions. Data were obtained on grain yield, tiller number...
Time of stand establishment is a critical factor affecting
yields of winter wheat and barley in the fallow-crop rotation areas
of the Pacific Northwest. Farmers in this winter-rainfall region
are dependent on residual moisture in the seed zone for germination,
because significant precipitation does not usually occur until
Two winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em Thell) and two
winter barley (Hordeum vulgare L. em Thell) cultivars were grown
with and without straw mulch utilizing six different planting dates.
Soil temperature was recorded continuously at seeding depth from
planting date through March of the crop year. A series of...
The effect of different soil moisture levels on the amount and
location of NO₃ -N accumulation in the soil profile were studied.
The cultivars used in this study were Mcdermid, a soft white
winter wheat, and Hudson, a medium early winter barley.
Moisture treatments simulating dry, normal and wet fallow...
An adequate stand at the optimum time is an important factor
affecting potential yield and soil erosion control. However, obtaining
adequate stands of fall planted winter wheat in the dryland areas of the
Pacific Northwest is often complicated by marginal seed zone soil
moisture. The purpose of this laboratory study...
The effects of different fallow moisture levels and tillage
systems on the amount of nitrate-nitrogen accumulation in the 0-30 cm
soil profile were studied.
Fallow moisture treatments simulating typical dry, normal and
wet precipitation cycles were established on trial plots.
Data were obtained for nitrate-nitrogen, soil moisture and
Dryland winter wheat in eastern Oregon is usually subjected to
water stress several times during the growing period. Moreover, the
last three months of growth period depend strongly on the available
soil water. The fertility level, stage of growth, availability of
soil water and climatic conditions all interact to determine...
Farmers and researchers are aware of spatial variation in
grain yield within farms or fields. Fertilizer management may be
improved if techniques can be developed to identify grain yield
variations in wheat fields. Aerial color infrared (CIR)
photography was used to identify winter wheat (Triticum aestivum
L.) canopy biomass variability...
Rate of emergence is an important character for stand
establishment. Ability of wheat seeds to germinate and
emerge rapidly under different climatic conditions may be
regulated by physical and/or physiological characteristics.
Seeds of 26 wheat varieties representing five classes
were produced in two different environments (Moro and Corvallis,
Downy brome (Bromus tectorum. L.), a serious grass weed in eastern
Oregon can be partially controlled in wheat by metribuzin [4-amino-6-tertbutyl-
3-(methylthio)-as triazin -5(4H)-one]. However, cultivars of many crops
Lave been reported to differ in their level of tolerance to metribuzin. This
lack of tolerance has led to the investigation...
