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’s main goal is to demonstrate how to satisfy most of the requirements of a strongly N-dependent crop by improving N-supply synchronization, while protecting the farmers’ prior year revenue-generating window.
