Yantai Gan, a researcher at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada at Swift Current, Saskatchewan, says that while seed size is a genetically controlled trait, the seed size distribution in the harvested seed lot is strongly influenced by several factors, including the growing season environment.To help guide chickpea growers on the best agronomic practices for growing bigger seed, he conducted a field experiment from 2004 to 2006 with plots located at Swift Current and Shaunavon, Saskatchewan.

"Yes, we know that seed size is partially determined by the variety, but for a given variety, we wanted to find out what the influence of different factors were on seed size," explains Gan.
...
However, Gan explains that this difference was mainly due to 2004 when the two stubble types were in adjacent fields.
"The year of 2004 was wet with growing season precipitation about 40 percent greater than normal and in that year we had a difference in seed size between barley and wheat stubble.The two stubble types were in separate, adjacent fields, though, but they had the same level of residual soil N and water.However, during the last two years (normal to dry years), the two stubble types were in the same field and we didn't see any difference.So, there is a need to determine whether the differences observed in 2004 were due to wet conditions or due to other factors.In general, I wouldn't be too concerned about wheat or barley stubble selection," explains Gan.


Even, shallow planting depth helps Saskatchewan farmers beat the fall frost - Reduced Tillage LINKAGES

Crops seeded unevenly "are the worst," says Dr. Yantai Gan, a research scientist at the Agriculture Canada Research Station in Swift Current. Shallow seeded plants emerge several days faster and compete with the slower emerging, deep seeded plants for water, light and soil nutrients, reducing their yield by up to 50% or more. There can be 10 days between the first and last plants to emerge, which can be crucial in a frost year, he adds. Dr. Gan says frost or no frost, crops seeded shallow and uniform have a definite edge. They emerge more quickly and evenly, mature faster, and have higher yields. He led a three-year study that showed canola, mustard, and flax planted uniformly at ¾ of an inch in early May emerged 3 to 5 days faster than seeds planted at 2 inches and had yields up to 25 % higher.

...
Dr. Gan says it depends largely on the land, how evenly farmers distribute residue from last year's crop if they direct seed, and the depth control they achieve with their equipment.
