Improved predictions of crop yields under climate change now possible

An improved calculation of crop response to variations in temperature reduces the uncertainty of crop yield predictions by up to 50 percent.

Can environmental measures in Denmark lead to deforestation in other parts of the world?

A new database provides an overview of where in the world deforestation has taken place and how the land is used afterwards. One of the things the database can be used for is to assess how land use changes affect climate on the global level.

Danish seed production at the forefront

Danish farmers are eminent at producing seeds but in order to keep ahead of the competition they must be even better. Researchers from Aarhus University are partners in a project that will contribute to reducing the use of pesticides and increasing the yield in grass and spinach seed crops.

Field day for work partners

The annual field day in AU Flakkebjerg gave the Department of Agroecology's collaborative partners the opportunity to see for themselves if the various pesticides work as well as they should.

Hitting the bull’s eye on crop nutrient requirements

Researchers from Aarhus University have developed a method to match crop nitrogen requirements more precisely than ever before. The method can reduce agricultural nitrogen emissions and simultaneously optimise yield.

There is potential for agriculture in Greenland

Global warming means that Greenland will have longer and warmer summers. This can pave the way for new possibilities for agriculture – but there is a lack of knowledge about all sorts of things ranging from optimal cultivation methods to good logistics solutions and sustainable energy consumption.

Agriculture must use help from Mother Nature

Nature can give a helping hand to avoid nitrogen loss from agriculture to the aquatic environment. This was one of several important points at an international workshop regarding landscape filters organized by Aarhus University.

Development of mini-wetlands with biofilters enters new phase

New mini-wetlands with biofilters will be established in the course of the summer and autumn of 2017 with the aim of generating more knowledge and experience regarding this particular measure against nitrogen loss to the aquatic environment.

Several factors must be taken into consideration when calculating which landscape filter system has the best cost efficiency. Photo: Colourbox

What does it cost to remove nitrogen from farmers’ fields?

Nitrogen from farmers’ fields must not end up in the aquatic environment but what is the most cost efficient offsite solution? This question was discussed at an international workshop organised by Aarhus University.
