Pulse Agronomy Webinar: Nutrient Requirements and Contribution of Pulse Crops

April 18, 2017

12:00-1:00PM

Join us as we learn about the nutrients your pulse crops need, as well as what they contribute to subsequent crops grown in your rotation, with Dr. Jeff Schoenau

During this webinar you will learn about:

  1. Pulse crops we have evaluated: soybeans, peas, and lentils can derive significant proportion (~70% or more) of the nitrogen they require from fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by rhizobium bacteria in nodules on their roots.This contributes to the nutrition of following crops.

  2. In short-term, the growth and nutrition of wheat and canola grown on pulse stubble was not greatly influenced by pulse stubble type (e.g. soybeans versus peas).

  3. However, we have identified some legume crops like soybeans and faba beans to have particularly high content and removal of phosphorus in grain. This means greater potential for soil P fertility depletion over several rotational cycles.
