Wheatland Conservation Area Inc. – project results from the dry Brown Soil Zone
The Wheatland Conservation Area Inc. manages and operates the brown soil zone Agri-ARM program in southwest Saskatchewan. Our non-profit organization conducts producer driven applied research and extension. The majority of the work done is large plot, replicated studies using field scale equipment. Small plot replicated studies are done to a lesser extent, as well as a few non-replicated demonstrations. Results are extended to producers at tours, workshops, and trade shows, as well as by newsletters, fact sheets, and a weekly radio segment called “Walk the Plots”. Partnerships with government and non-government organizations, as well as industry, and producers are a large part of our overall success. Since we are the only site in the dry Brown Soil Zone we run satellite sites throughout the south west in addition to the main site at Swift Current. This is to insure a wider audience and increased adoption rates by producers in the south west. These sites are located near Assiniboia, Frontier, Aneroid, and Success. Small, single study sites are also located in the area. Approximately forty trials are conducted annually involving pulse crops, forages, oilseeds, cereals, cereal recrops, and many others.
