Carleton University chemistry professor Maria DeRosa and adjunct professor Carlos Monreal are developing a smart fertilizer that waits to release its nutrients until crops tell it to do so. Currently, unused or excess fertilizer often ends up in lakes and water ways where it creates algae blooms. A more efficient and cost-effective fertilizer can play a leading role in increasing crop yields and addressing malnutrition issues, as well as reducing the amount of fertilizer that farmers need to use, resulting in cost savings. This project has received support from Coop Fédérée and Agrium, as well as Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions.
