Management recommendations focusing on rate, timing, source, and method of nutrient application for irrigated wheat production in eastern Oregon.
Addresses nutritional requirements of nonirrigated cereal crops in north-central and eastern Oregon. Includes recommendations for nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, chloride, and zinc.
Are you thinking about using manure to fertilize your farm but want more information? Properly managed manure applications recycle nutrients to crops, improve soil quality, and protect water quality. From deciding whether manure is ...
Some farmers in the Inland Pacific Northwest have reported lower grain yield of spring cereals with no-till (NT) compared to conservation tillage (CT). A 4-year field study was conducted in a 12-inch annual precipitation zone to determine tillage method and sowing rate effects on seed-zone water, seed-zone temperature, plant stand, grain yield, grain yield components, and straw production for three spring-sown cereal species.

Herbicides applied to pastures and some crops can persist in soil amendments like hay, manure, compost and grass clippings. Make sure your amendments are free of these herbicides before you contaminate your soil.
Today, turfgrass is the single largest irrigated crop in the United States and covers three times the land area of any other cultivated crop. An estimated 40.5 million acres of grasses are planted in residential, commercial and...
Land-grant soil scientists in the Pacific Northwest have written this publication to share information and to relate in-depth the wheat and N management issues related to grain protein enhancement. The focus is on irrigated wheat, but many of the principles will apply to rain-fed wheat as well.
