Three researchers from Tech have received grants totalling DKK 9.5 million from the Novo Nordisk Foundation's programme for research into plant, agriculture and food science.
New research suggests that crops have different potential for protein extraction in biorefining.
The carbon cycle, especially CO2, plays a role in climate change. Agriculture is responsible for a large share of climate gas emissions, and even small changes in the soil's carbon pool can reduce or increase emissions. There is therefore a need for accurate inventories of agricultural soil carbon and, in particular, changes in the carbon pool. An improved methodology now makes it possible to take into account soil bulk density and rock fragments, so that inventories can be more accurate than before.
Researchers from across Europe will work together to use artificial intelligence to monitor and predict soil health. This is happening in a new Horizons Europe project (AI4SoilHealth), which aims to create a digital infrastructure for monitoring and forecasting soil health indicators in Europe.
