Researchers looking for native rangelands in Alberta, Saskatchewan

A team of researchers out of the University of Saskatchewan is looking to culture and identify fungi from native rangelands in a step towards developing inoculums to improve forage productivity and salinity tolerance.

What they’ll do

The team will take soil samples from saline and non-saline native rangeland in Alberta and Saskatchewan, quantify soil characteristics, and culture fungi from those samples.

How you can help

If you manage saline or non-saline native rangelands, and are interested in being involved, you can help by providing access to your property, and a quick tour of potential sampling locations.

Participating producers are welcome to attend project update meetings, and can be kept abreast of the results. Specific location data can also be shared upon request.

The sampling should take about half a day per property, and will occur in August and September.

Interested?

If you’re interested in being involved in this project, please contact Dr. Jonathan Bennett at jon.bennett@usask.ca or 1-306-966-7492.
