Each year, IRDA's R&D Team conducts more than one hundred research projects in sustainable agriculture. What's more, IRDA is working with Quebec's key agricultural stakeholders to find concrete solutions.
This project looks to develop decision-support tools informed by observations of “bellwether” plots and use these tools to disseminate relevant information to irrigators.
This project proposes an intervention in a typical potato cropping system to enhance the crop uptake of water and nitrogen.
The goal of this project was to develop an “irrigation roadshow” for eight farming regions in Québec.
The objective of this project was to develop effective techniques for controlling water table levels in sphagnum moss basins. Underground irrigation systems were installed at a number of experimental sites.
