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.

This project’s main goal is to demonstrate how to satisfy most of the requirements of a strongly N-dependent crop by improving N-supply synchronization, while protecting the farmers’ prior year revenue-generating window.
Researcher: Christine Landry
The project consists of evaluating soil degradation based on representative samples taken in Québec’s main soil regions and parent materials.
