Pulse School: Tight Lentil Rotations Weighed on 2012 Crop

Lentil struggled in some areas this year, as areas of Saskatchewan still had a excess moisture or the hangover from it to deal with. Still other areas were very dry, or suffered from extreme weather. Of note, fields with tight lentil/wheat rotations certainly suffered lower yields versus fields with at least one year of an oilseed thrown in the mix.

It’s not all cautionary tales, though. In this episode of the Pulse School, Bert Vandenberg of the University of Saskatchewan, also talks about a new, exciting lentil variety with some star power and a new line with increased anthracnose resistance. He also gives an update on Canadian lentil markets around the world.
