Is it faster to degrade than to restore soil physical properties?

Researchers from Aarhus University are using a long-term field experiment to investigate what happens to the soil physical properties when the fields are converted from arable or bare fallow management to grassland or vice versa to find out if and how quickly a restoration or degradation of the soil organic carbon content, structural stability,…

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…
