This research project, initiated by the CÉROM grain research centre, looks to assess the cost-effectiveness of nitrogen fertilizer applications improved by the addition of urea, for use with winter wheat crops grown in Québec.
In this project, IRDA’s role will be to analyze the cost-effectiveness of the applications.
From 2019 to 2022
IRDA's economic analyses help assess the implementation costs and cost-effectiveness of farming practices.
