Calling All Producers: Help Identify Key Factors Limiting CWRS Yield Potential

Take part in a prairie‐wide project to generate baseline producer data on current CWRS wheat management practices in irrigated and dryland production systems. This project aims to identify the key factors that prevent you from obtaining potential yields achievable on your farm.

Simply provide us with grain yield and agronomic data for at least two dryland or irrigated CWRS fields from both 2019 and 2020. We’ll then provide you with an in‐depth data analysis of on‐farm factors contributing to a yield gap in prairie CWRS wheat production.

To participate, contact Jamie Puchinger at 403-317-0022 by March 19, 2021. All data submissions are strictly confidential. The first 50 respondents in Alberta will be entered to win one of three $250 prepaid Visa gift cards.

This project is a collaboration with colleagues at the Global Yield Gap Atlas, Kansas State University, and provincial experts from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Project funders include Alberta Wheat and Barley Commission, Alberta Innovates BioSolutions, Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, and Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers Association.
