Nutrient Budgeting in Organic Grain Production

Iris Vaisman, University of Manitoba

Green manures play an essential role in organic grain-based systems on the Canadian prairies by contributing to soil health, cash crop yield, and grain quality. The goal of this project is to increase the use and proper management of green manures. The researchers want to help farmers better understand their whole-farm nutrient budget and increase the adoption of green manures to enhance soil health and farm resiliency.

Impact: Improved soil health, cash crop yield, and grain quality through the use and proper management of green manures.
