This project evaluated the impact of various corn, soya, and wheat fertilization methods on marketable yields, harvest quality, nitrate losses, and movement of microorganisms potentially pathogenic for humans.
From 2014 to 2017
Fertilizer management, Organic farming
This project will help growers select the right fertilizers, to optimize yields.
Growing Forward 2
Project to restore the rainbow smelt spawning grounds at the mouth of Rivière Boyer on the St. Lawrence River.
This project will develop a versatile tool that will allow to simulate the impacts of agricultural practices on soil organic matter.
In a wheat/grain corn/soya rotation, green manure can be used to obtain profitable organic grain corn yields while limiting phosphorus pollution.
