The aim of this project was to consolidate current scientific knowledge with a view to developing a spatially referenced tool to predict diffuse sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus exports at the farm and watershed scale.
From 2015 to 2018
Field crops, Livestock production
Soil health, Water protection, Ecosystem protection
As a result of this project, a tool was developed to predict diffuse sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus exports.

Canola and wheat (wheat-corn-canola rotation) were planted in 2016 and 2017, respectively, on 12 experimental plots with tillage practices on the main plots (minimum tillage and chisel plow) and fertilization methods (mineral fertilizers, 25 m3/ha of pig manure and 50 m3/ha of pig manure) in the subplots.
This project will develop a versatile tool that will allow to simulate the impacts of agricultural practices on soil organic matter.
