The aim of this project was to identify manure management strategies that boost productivity on Québec dairy farms and reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). The project took a high-level, integrated approach, examining both plant and animal components of dairy farms.
From 2017 to 2019
