    Cover: 38 Years of Irrigated Crop Rotations And Their Management On The Clay Soils In The Belle Fourche Irrigation Project At The U.S. Belle Fourche Field Station 2. Irrigated Crop Rotations on the Clay Soils of Western South Dakota1 HARRY E. vVEAKLY and L.B. NnsoN2Author: H. E. Weakley, L. B. Nelson. Conventional dryland crops and rotations are inefficient in terms of water and land use, whereas full irrigation depletes groundwater. The dryland study examines intensive crop rotations and nontraditional crops; the purpose of the irrigated study is to slow the transition from irrigated to dryland agriculture.

    Canola is a significant crop of the Canadian Prairies and has been grown there for quite sometime. For many irrigators in the cooler parts of Montana, canola has become a significant cash crop in a very traditional cereal grain rotation. And, many producers are finding the benefits of a high yielding, high quality canola crop to be more than just economic.   This segment in the Soil Health, A Montana Perspective video series discusses one of the tools that agricultural producers can use to .

Hastings, Stephen H., "Irrigated Crop Rotations in Southern Montana," Technical BulletinsUnited States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research. Dryland production in Montana is dominated by wheat/fallow crop rotations due primarily to the limited rainfall in the region, but also because wheat is very well adapted to the region.

Maintaining fallow conditions, either through tillage or through multiple herbicide applications for nine or more months every other year leads to soil degradation and declines in. The ± deeded acres of the Kinsey Irrigated Farm are located 18 miles northeast of Miles City, Montana in the fertile Yellowstone River Valley.

The Kinsey Irrigation District provides water for the ± irrigated acres that have been used to grow primarily corn, silage and alfalfa as a feed Acres: $1, Crop rotations vary as well but typically include a small-grain crop, pulse crop, and green fallow.

Our 4 year study (), funded by Western SARE, was a collaborative project with Montana producers to look at cover crop mixtures as a partial replacement of fallow in rain-fed cropping systems.

We have continued a portion of that study with funding from the Montana Fertilizer Advisory Committee. Small grains are an extremely important component of Montana agriculture.

Eastern Montana produced nearly 48 million bushels of spring wheat inabout 46% of the spring wheat produced in Montana. Approximately 82% of the Montana durum crop was produced in this region. More foreign markets are showing interest in purchasing durum from this area.

Crop rotations require multidimensional thinking. Rotation management requires understanding both the whole farm and each individual field and balancing field and farm-scale decisions (figure ).

On successful farms, rotation planning is a rolling, responsive process. You can plan your crop rotations by using a paper template to simulate your crops and growing areas. Ample research showing that crop rotation supports healthy soil and results in.

Article: Crop Rotation with Cover Crops. One of the biggest challenges of cover cropping is to fit cover crops into your current rotations, or to develop new rotations that take full advantage of their benefits. One crop rotation system might be easily adapted to fit your existing crops, equipment and management.

Crop Rotation on Organic Farms will be most applicable for the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada, but will also be useful in other parts of the U.S., Canada, and even Europe. Published by the Natural Resource, Agriculture and Engineering Service (NRAES) and funded in part by SARE, the book includes instructions for making rotation 5/5(5).

Summary statistics for crop yield, crop water use, and irrigation were presented for all rotations. Long-term water use of simulations and irrigation probability exceedance statistics are presented for all simulated crops.

These data may serve as a decision support tool for producers considering crop rotation by: IRRIGATION IN MONTANA – A PROGRAM OVERVIEW AND ECONOMIC ANALYSIS August 99 W. 10 th Avenue, Suite Eugene, OR Phone: With assistance fromFile Size: KB. A diversity of agronomic and horticulture crops can be grown in North Dakota.

This diversity is expanded when the potential to provide supplemental water through irrigation is considered. The variations in climatic conditions and soil resources, extensive agricultural infrastructure, and willingness of North Dakota farmers to assume the risk of producing. The use of integrated crop production systems (ICPS), with multiple alternative crop options and rotations, increases the biological diversity of crops and soils.

This "biologically dynamic" approach is advantageous to overall production in both the central (Nielsen, ; Anderson et al., ) and northern Great Plains (Johnston et al.
