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.

From 2019 to 2022
IRDA's economic analyses help assess the implementation costs and cost-effectiveness of farming practices.

The project compared the nitrogen uptake effects of green manure crops grown for a full season, in association with a main crop, or after it is harvested.
The aim of this project was to gather data on the nutritional requirements of barley to better equip producers, extension agents, and other industry stakeholders.

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.
