Assessing the cost-effectiveness of improved nitrogen fertilizer applications

Luc Belzile

Description

This research project, led 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.

Objective(s)

  • Compare the effects of untreated urea and three improved nitrogen fertilizers on:
    • the yields and grain quality of winter wheat
    • the efficiency of N utilization by winter wheat
    • the cost-effectiveness of the winter wheat crop

From 2019 to 2022
