The goal of the project is to improve biological methods for controlling the cabbage seedpod weevil in canola crops. In this project, initiated by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and conducted in Québec by UQAM, IRDA is performing an economic analysis of the practices under study.
From 2018 to 2022
Pest, weed, and disease control, Organic farming
IRDA's economic analyses help assess the implementation costs and cost-effectiveness of farming practices.

The project consists of evaluating soil degradation based on representative samples taken in Québec’s main soil regions and parent materials.
In a wheat/grain corn/soya rotation, green manure can be used to obtain profitable organic grain corn yields while limiting phosphorus pollution.
