Protein in new ways

Aarhus University is part of a new, broad partnership regarding research in and development of a Danish production of proteins for feed, food and pharma.

In a new project, researchers will map soil characteristics in widely different types of catchment areas and in great soil depth. The aim is better targeted regulation. Photo: Janne Hansen

Mapping provides a better basis for targeted regulation

Detailed soil mapping in different types of catchment areas and the development of new environmental management tools will help agriculture to put a more targeted nitrogen regulation into practice.

Six research bioreactors with wood chips are now in place

Six test facilities have been established in various geo-regions and thereby with various soil and weather conditions, and the research project is now entering a new phase: data gathering.

Maize cultivation with reduced environmental impact

A better utilisation of slurry can contribute to a sustainable maize production that uses less mineral fertiliser without negative effects on yield.

Maize is a crop that will find things more and more difficult as climate change gives us more drought during the summer. Here is a Danish maize field from July 2018. Photo: Janne Hansen

Climate changes require better adaptation to drought

Europe’s future climate will be characterised by more frequent heat waves and more widespread drought. Heat and drought will both challenge crop production, but drought in particular will be a problem – especially for spring sown crops such as maize.

Can forests save us from climate change?

A new study published in Nature has found that managing Europe’s forests to maximise carbon sequestration has a negligible effect on the global climate.

Following the path of chemicals through the soil

A new and quick way to predict the transport of chemicals through the soil has been developed by researchers at Aarhus University.

Efficient ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture

Agriculture can use a range of measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A new report provides an overview of the potentials, effects and barriers of these measures.
