Risk models may reduce the use of fungicides against septoria

Researchers from Aarhus University have together with SEGES developed a risk model for septoria tritici blotch in wheat to support farmer's decisions about when fungicides are needed. The researchers, in collaboration with different Nordic and Baltic partners have tested the validity of two risk models.

Cover crops release of nitrogen investigated

The mineralisation of cover crops releases nitrogen for future crops, but it may also cause leaching of nitrate which can be harmful to the aquatic environment. Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have investigated different cover crops and how they are turned over in the soil and how this may release nitrogen to…

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
