The aim of the project was to measure the performance and water requirements of eight potato cultivars under commercial production conditions. Five cultivars commonly used in Québec and three others that are gaining in popularity were irrigated based on the physical properties of cultivated soil.
From 2016 to 2018
Optimal water management
This project demonstrates that producers can use less water per potato grown.

This project aims to develop a GHD-based fertilizer management system using split band applications for high-N-demand crops grown in rows, e.g., summer cabbage.
Managing potato residues is therefore a big challenge, which will only increase with the enforcement of the Québec Residual Materials Waste Management Policy.
This project was aimed at determining the nutrient needs of beets based on soil texture and phosphorus and potassium levels under Québec growing conditions.
