Comparison of Traditional Crop Inputs and Biostimulants Application on Wheat, Canola and Peas in Alberta
Access to a plethora of micro-nutrients, plant growth hormones, mycorrhizae, pesticides and biostimulants have left crop producers overwhelmed with anecdotal claims of higher yielding crops and healthier soils. The proposed project aims to validate a selection of 4 full-package systems against conventional systems to determine feasibility. Over three years, each of these 4 systems will be applied to peas, canola, and wheat in Lethbridge, Forestburg, and Fahler. Plant response and economics will be studied and findings will be disseminated through planned KTT activities.
