Project Update: Nitrogen Use Efficiency at the Lacombe Field Crop Development Centre

Posted on Jan 23 By: Sydney Duhaime

Yadeta Kabeta, a research scientist with the Field Crop Development Centre (FCDC) in Lacombe, explains his work on Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE) in barley.

NUE increases nitrogen uptake and use in the plant to help boost crop yields. This is beneficial to farmers as increased NUE also means lower input costs on materials, such as fertilizer.

A special thanks goes out to the Lacombe FCDC for their participation and cooperation in this video update. Enjoy.
