Take part in an international, prairie-wide project to generate baseline producer data on current CWRS wheat management practices. We need 2019/2020 data from irrigated and dryland production systems. We need 100 Alberta farms, 150 Saskatchewan farms and 75 farms in Manitoba to take part and provide data.
This project aims to identify the key factors that prevent CWRS wheat producers from obtaining potential yields on individual farms.
This project asks you to provide us with yield and other agronomic data specific to your CWRS wheat production. We need grain yield and agronomic data for at least twoâ€¯dryland or irrigated CWRS fields from 2019 and 2020. You can leave the in-depth data analysis to us; we just need to know of on-farm factors contributing to a yield gap in prairie CWRS wheat development.
Our project objective is to WORK FOR YOU. Our goal is to use YOUR data to help YOU realize higher wheat yields on YOUR farm fields.
Once you know what production factors hold back YOUR current wheat yields, you can aim for your field's highest yield potential.
To participate, contact Jamie Puchinger (office 403-317-0022) All data submissions are strictly confidential. You can download the fillable PDF here, or email Excel documents directly to Jamie.
This project is a collaboration with colleagues at the Global Yield Gap Atlas, https://www.yieldgap.org/ Kansas State University, and provincial experts from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Alberta Wheat and Barley Commission, Alberta Innovates BioSolutions, Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, and Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers Association fund this project.
