Carrots can replace synthetic dyes in foods

A number of synthetic dyes in foods are suspected of having unwanted side effects especially for children. For this reason, over the past ten years, the EU has required products containing selected synthetic dyes to have clear warning labels on the packaging. This has resulted in a great demand for natural dyes worldwide. Now researchers from…

No side effects with mechanical control of root weeds in organic fields

A 4-year trial in Norway has highlighted the effect of various mechanical weeding methods against root weeds on organic fields. The team of researchers from Denmark, Norway and Sweden also investigated whether mechanical weed control, in addition to an effect on weeds, could also increase disease infestation, adversely affect soil structure or…

PhD course: C and N flows in cover crop and grassland-based systems
The sustainability of the plant production needs to increase, and the key issues are to enhance the nutrient use efficiency reducing external inputs and increasing soil carbon (C) storage mitigating atmospheric CO2 loads. Nitrogen (N) is a key limiting nutrient for both plant growth and C storage, which requires good management to keep N in the system and add it via N2-fixing legumes

PhD-course: Near infrared spectroscopy in soil science
The course is designed to provide an in depth theoretical and practical knowledge of visible near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and its application to soil science. The objectives of the course are to develop the participants’ ability to use NIRS sensors and provide the basic skills to analyse soil spectra.
