      Soil moisture is an important measure in determining crop yield potential in Canada and in drought-affected parts of the world (Africa) and for watershed modelling. The moisture content generally refers to the water contained in the upper m of soil, which can potentially evaporate into the atmosphere. The Department of Plant Sciences is housed in the state-of-the-art Agriculture Building. Located within the building are research laboratories and a 30, controlled environment facility. greenhouses are located within walking distance of the building. The land base dedicated to plant research totals 1, ha. The.

    Dr. Darwin Anderson worked for many years for the Saskatchewan Soil Survey before joining the Department of Soil Science as a Professor and Head of the Department. Dr. Anderson has extensive field experience in all regions of the province and has a special interest in soil organic matter dynamics in soils. The Plenary Assembly endorsed the list of 27 experts and approved the establishment of the first Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils on that basis. It asked the Secretariat to support and facilitate the activities of the ITPS as may be requested by the Assembly, including the organization of its first meeting, and assisting with its.

Paul Hoyt was a soil chemist at Beaverlodge (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada) for many years. A newer, more detailed (k) soil map based on taxonomic principles with capability (now referred to as suitability) interpretations based on the CLI model has been compiled for several provinces, including Saskatchewan (Saskatchewan Soil Information Database Version 4 (SKSIDv4)) (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, ).Cited by:

This data set provides soil descriptions for forested areas in the BOREAS southern study area (SSA) in central Saskatchewan, Canada provided by Agriculture Canada.

The data contain soil code, modifiers, extent, and soil names for the primary, secondary, and tertiary soil units within each : D.E. Knapp, H. Rostad. Spatial Coverage: BOREAS Southern Study Area, in central Saskatchewan, Canada.

Spatial Resolution: Vector data are based on soils maps that were created at a scale ofTemporal Coverage: The soils were originally mapped in the early s, but the data have been periodically updated by Agriculture Canada based on new information through the date of.

This data set consists of GIS layers that describe the soils of the BOREAS SSA. These original data layers were submitted as vector data in ARC/INFO EXPORT format.

These data also include the soil name and soil layer files, which provide additional information about the soils.

The page book, with Dan Pennock, professor at Canada's University of Saskatchewan as its lead author, takes stock of the current state of knowledge regarding soil erosion.

More research has been published on the topic. Crop yields vary greatly across the province, mainly due to the extremely dry conditions this spring and summer as well as moisture received throughout the growing season. Many areas have reported average to above average yields. Yields for hard red spring wheat are reported as 45 bushels per acre, durum as 39 bushels per acre, oats as 88 Occupation: Crops Extension Specialist.
