The soil needs carbon

It is imperative to maintain or increase soil organic carbon for protecting the climate and improving soil fertility. Researchers from Aarhus University are partners in a new international project that will develop and disseminate knowledge in this area.

Milk from grass-fed cows can become a new, healthy and holistic organic luxury product

Organic dairy farming can become even greener if the milk is produced almost exclusively on grass-based feed. This type of production will the make both the milk and the organic production system healthier.

Which road could cattle production take?

Researchers from Aarhus University will describe future sustainable cattle production systems by setting up a range of future scenarios. This will be done in collaboration with Seges, Arla and others from the industry in order to support a sustainable, holistic and balanced development of cattle production.

New list of high-risk pests is available

Researchers at Aarhus University have prepared a list of the organisms that pose the greatest risk to Danish greenhouse crops.

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.
