Information is not enough – motivation is also necessary

Insight into farmer behavior, information about local conditions, research-based knowledge and appropriate policies must come together for successful implementation of conservation drainage and other landscape scale measures to reduce nutrient losses.

Unlocking the secrets of resistant weeds

How and why do weeds become resistant to herbicides? A new European project in which scientists from Aarhus University are participating aims to find answers to this question with the aim of developing efficient weed management strategies.

Keeping one step ahead of resistant fungi

European researchers are joining forces to keep tabs on the spread of resistance in the fungi that cause the wheat disease septoria tritici blotch and to develop control methods that can help reduce dependence on fungicides.

Biofilters and mini-wetlands can reduce nitrogen leaching

New research results indicate that constructed wetlands with biofilters can be effective measures to reduce nitrogen emissions from field drains to the aquatic environment. The Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark is supporting further research in the area.

Grasses are good at using the sun to be productive

Scientists from Aarhus University have studied how efficient crops are at using the sun to produce biomass for biorefining. This knowledge can be put to use to optimise biomass yields and improve sustainability.

Increased knowledge required on production of protein from green biomasses

Green biomasses hold a significant potential as an alternative to traditional protein sources. However, a recent report establishes the fact that further knowledge is required on the economic and environmental consequences in case an actual commercial production is implemented.

Are we prepared if wheat stem rust spreads further north?

European wheat crops may be at risk from new races of the stem rust disease, and call for increased research and surveillance. Aarhus University plays a central role by hosting the Global Rust Reference Center.
