Liming on acidic soils reduces nitrous oxide emissions and increases yields

Researchers from Aarhus University and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences have found that when farmers apply lime to acidic fields, they can not only increase crop production, but also reduce nitrous oxide emissions and increase the soil capacity to oxidize methane, thereby contributing to climate change mitigation.

Green demonstration plant ravaged by fire

A building at AU Foulum, which among other things houses a demonstration plant for biorefining, was ravaged by fire on Tuesday night. Despite damage to the building, the researchers expect that the experimental activities will be able to resume within two weeks.

Lucerne and chicory have the potential to loosen compacted subsoil

Using a medical CT scanner in a laboratory experiment, researchers have assessed the ability of five crops to loosen heavily compacted soil caused by heavy machinery. Long-term cultivation of lucerne and chicory show great potential for mitigating subsoil compaction.
