The general goal of the project is to develop biostimulants from oils produced by the rapid pyrolysis of crop and logging residues. The oils’ biostimulant effect on plant growth and root development will be evaluated.
The project will begin with laboratory tests on plant models and, depending on the results, will move on to field trials.
From 2018 to 2019
In addition to boosting crop yields, this project will help resolve the challenges of agricultural and forestry byproduct management.

IRDA has been mandated to design, install, and operate a hydrometric station at the watershed outlet of Ruisseau aux Castors in the Brome-Missisquoi regional county municipality.
The team at IRDA conducted hydrological monitoring on Branch 1 of the Campbell Stream (test basin) as well as the stream’s main branch, which was used as a control.
