Improving crop yields and quality of produce on farms

Extreme weather events and unpredictable weather patterns can delay growing seasons for certain crops.

Researchers at Lakehead University’s Agricultural Research Station (LUARS) are experimenting with new fertilizers to help Northern farmers protect their crops from nitrogen loss and mitigate the impacts of a shorter growing season.

“I believe we are the first in Ontario to test this new fertilizer product on canola,” said Dr. Tarlok Sahota, Director of the Agricultural Research Station.

Urea Super U is a ready-to-use premium fertilizer that offers highly effective above and below ground protection against all three forms of nitrogen loss, and farmers are already benefiting from its use. The water-soluble granules are uniformly integrated with the dual inhibitors, NBPT and DCD, to deliver consistent performance.
