- Enhancing Excess Moisture Tolerance in Barley Through Manipulation of Phytoglobins
- A System for Real Time Soil Moisture Monitoring and Forecasting in Manitoba
- Potential for Soil and Crop Management Practices to Rapidly Increase Soil Organic Matter on Eroded Land in Manitoba
- Soil Water Dynamics in Long-Term Integrated Crop Rotation Studies: Developing Water-Smart Cropping Systems
- Using Plants to Manage Extreme Moisture
- Optimizing Nitrogen Management Under Conditions of Extreme Moisture
- An Economic Estimation of Cost and Benefits for Farm-Level Management of Excess Moisture
- Comprehensive development and integration of improved management tools and techniques to mitigate the costs of extreme moisture.
- Long-term research planning and programming with an intentional increased and sustained focus on extreme moisture management for the next decade.
- Benefits accrued from individual projects and the improved collaborative environment for cross-disciplinary innovation creating accelerated progress.
