Plots were set up at the Organic Agriculture Innovation Platform in St-Bruno-de-Montarville, Québec. They included nine treatments replicated four times in a split-plot design with green manure (none, grain, and legumes) in the main plots and fertilization methods in the subplots (no fertilizer, poultry manure pellets, and composted beef manure).
