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 aims to establish technical, economic, social and environmental benchmarks for irrigation of field and forage crops.
This project will develop a versatile tool that will allow to simulate the impacts of agricultural practices on soil organic matter.
This project aims to develop a digital decision support tool to improve the nutritional quality and yield of alfalfa from analyses of the nutritional quality of forages, based on its relationship with soil fertility and health, while including the other pedoclimatic parameters that define alfalfa production conditions.
