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).

Analyzing the factors influencing European corn borer abundance in Québec to improve monitoring methods and better manage future risks associated with this pest.
This three-year project looked at optimal ways to use a mix of flowering plants against caterpillar pests of crucifers.
Using a split-split-plot design, this study tested three variables: soil tillage, crop rotation in organic production, and fertilization with manure or compost.
