New solutions for improved agriculture in Africa

Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have just completed a research project in Ghana, which points to new solutions to increase crop yield in African agriculture, and thus can slow the rate of deforestation. The project has shown that irrigation as well as production and use of biochar can increase yields, as well as…

Later sowing can help control herbicide resistant weeds

Resistance to herbicides in weeds may be at the expense of other plant characteristics and may provide ideas for alternative control methods. Small changes in cultivation technology may help to reduce the problems of herbicide-resistant weeds in the fields, according to research from Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University.
