This project was carried out by Club agroenvironnemental de l’Estrie (CAE Estrie) and IRDA was in charge of conducting the economic analysis. The initial project of CAE Estrie was aimed at determining the effect of different types of green manure on the structural stability of till-based soils in the Estrie region. In this three-year project, green manure plots were set up in silage corn and wheat crops.
From 2015 to 2017
Soil health, Fertilizer management
Green manure contributes to the structural stability of soils.

To provide information on the fertilizing value and environmental impact of spreading pig manure at different times, the project compared the effect of mineral fertilizer in early fall, late fall, and in the spring.
This project aims to improve our understanding of the evolution and spatial variability of soil health indicators as barometers of climate change.
