Focus on technology and future farming

The Department of Agroecology has extensive collaboration with the industry. An example of this is the collaboration with CEO Ole Green, Agrointelli. Ole Green is the department’s recently appointed honorary professor and will give his inaugural lecture in October 2017.

Nurture the soil – it’s worth it

Profitability and sustainability can go hand in hand in crop production – especially if cropping systems that protect the soil are developed and applied. This is the basis for a new EU project with the participation of researchers from Aarhus University.

The connection between nitrogen utilisation and groundwater quality is clear

Nitrogen surplus from agriculture has a clear effect on the nitrogen status of the groundwater, according to 70 years of Danish measurement data.

Technology and the agriculture of the future on the agenda

Sustainability, technology and intelligent solutions go hand in hand in the agriculture of the future. The newly appointed honorary professor at the Department of Agroecology will speak about this in his inaugural lecture in October 2017.

More carbon in the soil, please

Conventional and organic crop farming can both reap the benefits of managing the soil in a more sustainable fashion, so that more carbon is added. Researchers from Aarhus University are part of a team that is developing new cropping systems to address these issues.
