Livestock Days Speaker Highlights

Salinity Project Seminar & Crop Tour: It All Starts with the Soil

11:00 am on August 20 & 21  

Presented by Blake Weiseth, Discovery Farm Applied Research Lead and Agriculture Research Chair with Saskatchewan Polytechnic  

Meet in the Warman Tool Centre for this seminar presentation followed by an optional crop tour. The big question is: can perennial forages be used as a tool to manage salt-affected soils in Western Canada? The Salinity Project will uncover possible solutions to this by using varying treatments of perennial forages to compare their establishment and productivity on salt-affected soils. This five-year project spanning two acres will also evaluate the measurable changes in soil properties, which will allow for observation on how the varying management practices influence the surface soil layer. Early observations from this project have shown that all three treatments have the ability to establish well in salt-affected soils and compete against weeds like foxtail barley and kochia. Specific treatments that will be monitored include Halo Alfalfa 2, AC Saltlander and a commercially-available proprietary blend of perennial species known as Salinemaster. This study is a collaborative effort with the following partners: Ducks Unlimited Canada, Nutrien Ag Solutions and Proven Seed.
