Grasses are good at using the sun to be productive

Scientists from Aarhus University have studied how efficient crops are at using the sun to produce biomass for biorefining. This knowledge can be put to use to optimise biomass yields and improve sustainability.

Increased knowledge required on production of protein from green biomasses

Green biomasses hold a significant potential as an alternative to traditional protein sources. However, a recent report establishes the fact that further knowledge is required on the economic and environmental consequences in case an actual commercial production is implemented.

Are we prepared if wheat stem rust spreads further north?

European wheat crops may be at risk from new races of the stem rust disease, and call for increased research and surveillance. Aarhus University plays a central role by hosting the Global Rust Reference Center.

Nitrogen application in grass-clover and grass seed needs the right balance

New technology will help farmers maintain the balance between too much and too little nitrogen in grass-clover and grass seed fields to the benefit of the crops and the environment.
