In this project conducted by Agrinova, IRDA is in charge of the economic analysis.
This initial, three-year project by Agrinova is aimed at testing methods of reducing and correcting surface soil compaction.
From 2017 to 2020
Every year IRDA collaborates with partners in the research and agricultural sectors.
This project relies on the continuous measurement of field water table heights; water exports; as well as sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus runoff into drains at four field-crop production sites.
