This research project, led by the CÉROM grain research centre, looks to assess the cost-effectiveness of nitrogen fertilizer applications improved by the addition of urea, for use with winter wheat crops grown in Québec.
In this project, IRDA’s role will be to analyze the cost-effectiveness of the applications.
