This project was carried out by Club agroenvironnemental de l’Estrie (CAE Estrie) and IRDA was in charge of conducting the economic analysis. The initial project of CAE Estrie was aimed at determining the effect of different types of green manure on the structural stability of till-based soils in the Estrie region. In this three-year project, green manure plots were set up in silage corn and wheat crops.
