two intake periods per year for research funding applications. Applications are reviewed based on the priority of the field of work, academic merit, and soundness of research methodology. In the past two years, several projects focused on nutrient management have been approved that have the potential to provide useful tools for producers. The innovative technologies in recent projects include:
• Using a membrane to separate ammonia from manure – the resulting ammonia product can be directly sold as a fertilizer (Dr. Jongho Lee, UBC)

DIREC Research Projects Update: Nutrient Management
 • Examining and refining the timing of phosphorus applications to corn and the mechanism of phosphorus uptake by the plants to improve early growth and limit residual phosphorus in the soil (Dr. Aimé Messiga, AAFC)
• Implementing mechanical vapour recompression technology that can be used with straight manure or in conjunction with a biodigester (Hallbar Consulting)
• Using a farm-scale dewatering centrifuge to separate phosphorus from liquid manure (Valid Manufacturing)
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ANY OF THESE PROJECTS OR OTHER DIREC ACTIVITIES, CONTACT DIREC@BCDAIRY.CA
