Nematode protection mechanisms to be elucidated

Certain nematodes cause great damage to crops and can be difficult to control. An improved understanding of nematodes' modes of action can contribute to developing efficient methods of control.

The right cover crop mix is the right choice for the environment

Optimising the combination of cover crop species can help reduce agriculture’s impact on the environment by improving nitrogen use efficiency.

To eat beef or not to eat beef?

Reducing your consumption of beef can be climate-friendly, but things are not that simple. Researchers are trying to nuance the climate debate by showing the full picture.

Researchers zoom in on the world of the root zone

There is a knowledge gap regarding the processes and mechanisms that control nitrogen and carbon build-up in the root zone of legumes. Researchers from Aarhus University are setting out to close that gap in a new project.

125th anniversary celebrated at Askov Experimental Station

Aarhus University’s long-term field experiments on manure and mineral fertilisers at Askov Experimental Station have provided soil, plants and data for a wide range of studies over the years. Some of the results were presented at the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the experiments.

Askov long-term field experiments continue to create trailblazing knowledge

At Askov Experimental Station, 125 years of continued nutrient applications at different rates and from different sources have created a unique research platform used by Danish and international experts from widely different research areas.

Grassland areas should be chosen wisely

When farmland is converted from grain production to grasslands, the greatest environmental benefits are obtained by choosing land that is close to existing natural areas or has high nutritional loads to aquatic environments, a new study indicates.
