Agricultural test plots in the Port-à-Piment watershed
In 2011, researchers and farmers from the Earth Institute and ORE conducted trial plots around the Port-à-Piment watershed to determine how different crop varieties, planting density, improved seeds, and fertilizer use impacted yields. The overwhelming outcome showed that fertilizer greatly improves yields across all variables. For more information, consult the Project Report on the Port-à-Piment Agriculture, Forestry and Environment Program prepared for the Countess Moira Charitable Foundation.
