This project evaluated the impact of various corn, soya, and wheat fertilization methods on marketable yields, harvest quality, nitrate losses, and movement of microorganisms potentially pathogenic for humans.
From 2014 to 2017
Fertilizer management, Organic farming
This project will help growers select the right fertilizers, to optimize yields.
Growing Forward 2
The objective of this project is to develop a prediction model for soil nitrogen supplies based on biological soil health indicators.

Canola and wheat (wheat-corn-canola rotation) were planted in 2016 and 2017, respectively, on 12 experimental plots with tillage practices on the main plots (minimum tillage and chisel plow) and fertilization methods (mineral fertilizers, 25 m3/ha of pig manure and 50 m3/ha of pig manure) in the subplots.
