Manitoba Corn Initiative – Corn Agronomy, Fertility, and Agrometeorology Project
MCGA funding up to $208,556 + GF2 funding $231,189 over 5 years
Dr. Yvonne Lawley coordinated a team of researchers (Dr. Don Flaten, Dr. Derek Brewin & Dr. Paul Bullock) and students from the University of Manitoba for the corn improvement program co-funded by the Canada-Manitoba Growing Forward 2 funds. Four masters students graduated throughout the five-year project. Their results have been published in our newsletters that were mailed directly to MCGA members, including the April/May 2017 MCGA newsletter includes masters grad Patrick Walther’s article “On-Farm Trial: Corn Residue Management for Soybean Production in Manitoba”, in several magazine and newspaper articles “Prairie corn: Agronomics and economics” in the September 2017 Issue of the Corn Guide and Country Guide and through the various Twilight Tours held at the University of Manitoba Research Farm in Carman, MB.
Here are a few materials that were produced from work done by MCGA funded students under the supervision of Dr. Yvonne Lawley at the University of Manitoba, Disc tillage not the only answer to corn residue, Tillage tools for Corn Residue Management, Managing Phosphorus and Zinc in Corn, Canola before Corn Cropping sequence effects.
