Soil compaction should receive attention on World Soil Day

Soil compaction below the plough layer is an increasing problem due to heavy farm machinery. For the past five years, Aarhus University has focused on this threat in an EU project about soil quality. This work has provided important knowledge about compaction mechanisms and the possibilities of mitigating the problem.

Aarhus University climate professor among world elite

Professor Jørgen E. Olesen from the Department of Agroecology is among the world’s 6000 most highly cited researchers.

The Y15 gene in wheat protects wheat against yellow rust. The columns show what happens 1, 7 and 14 days after infection with yellow rust on the cellular level and in the plant. The pictures in the second and fourth rows are from wheat that contains the Y15 gene, and show clearly how well it protects against yellow rust. Photo: Nature Communications
