Spreading pig manure late in the fall can have a variety of agronomic and environmental benefits To provide extension agents with information on the fertilizing value and environmental impact of spreading pig manure at different times, the project compared the effect of mineral fertilizer to that of pig manure spread in early fall, late fall, and in the spring.

This research project, initiated by the CÉROM grain research centre, looks to assess the cost-effectiveness of nitrogen fertilizer applications improved by the addition of urea, for use with winter wheat crops grown in Québec.
This project was carried out by Club agroenvironnemental de l’Estrie and IRDA was in charge of conducting the economic analysis.
The project was designed to assess the profitability of various types of cover crops and planting methods at the farm level.
