World Soil Day focuses on the very basis of life: soil

Research at Aarhus University contributes to protecting agricultural soil, which is challenged by modern management. The UN’s World Soil Day on December 5 focuses on the threats to soil quality.

Researchers from Aarhus University have provided input to development of an Agromek three-star New Product

One of Agromek’s three-star European New Products in 2016 was developed with input from researchers from Aarhus University. The new product is a system that automatically controls sowing depth with the aid of sensors.

Climate model predictions are telling a consistent story

Global wheat production will decrease by more than five percent with each 1°C increase in the global temperature. This rather bleak forecast has been confirmed in a comparison of three independent methods of modelling on how climate change will impact yield.

Nitrogen, clover, camera and image analysis all come together

New technology that combines cameras, sensors, computers and smartphones aims to increase productivity and may help reduce nitrogen fertilisation in clover-grass fields.

Which cropping system is best for the environment?

Early sown winter wheat, where the straw is removed every second year and used in biorefining, is the best of six different cereal cropping systems with regard to total environmental impact.

Networking is the way to go

Sharing results and practical experience across borders is imperative for spreading integrated pest management in agriculture. Scientists from Aarhus University and other European scientists recommend three ways to improve networking.

European visitors expressed great enthusiasm for AU Foulum

Two hundred researchers and representatives from European companies got together for two days at Aarhus University (AU) in Foulum to establish the basis for collaboration in biorefining.

Machine design and crop choice can reduce soil compaction

Heavy agricultural machinery used to cultivate the soil, apply animal manure and harvest crops contributes to the degradation of farmland. Innovation in relation to technology and crops can help remedy this serious problem.

The effects of pesticides on soil organisms are complex

Research shows that the interactions between pesticides, tillage and fertilisation are complex with respect to effects on the myriad of life forms in the soil. Such interactions should be considered in risk assessment of pesticides.
