Plots were set up at the Organic Agriculture Innovation Platform in St-Bruno-de-Montarville, Québec. They included nine treatments replicated four times in a split-plot design with green manure (none, grain, and legumes) in the main plots and fertilization methods in the subplots (no fertilizer, poultry manure pellets, and composted beef manure).

This project proposes ways of using legume intercrops to control vegetable pests (insects, diseases, and weeds) while increasing soil productivity and quality and economic yields.
This project aims to explore and experiment new approaches and ways to preserve, develop, and enhance the MRC’s bio-food sector, and reduce or eliminate the water deficit on the island.
Meeting nitrogen requirements mainly through the use of a highly stable form of fertilizer can minimize nitrogen losses, provide nitrogen amounts closer to the plant’s actual needs.
