Results from the first year - six new bioreactors using wood chips

There is a huge need for new measures to help reduce nitrogen leaching to the aquatic environment. Recent results from Aarhus University demonstrate that between 29 and 49 percent of the nitrogen are removed when drainage water is led through a bioreactor with wood chips. However, this is to be confirmed in more experiments.

Computer model can determine nitrogen mineralisation of catch crops

Reduced nitrate leaching and improved plant nitrogen availability are among the benefits of catch crops. A new model built by researchers from Department of Agroecology can determine the mineralisation of catch crops, and when linked to an agroecosystems model, it allows improved estimated of nitrate leaching and nitrogen supply to following…

Biochar as a source of phosphorus for crop fertilisation

Pyrolysis is not only a source of sustainable and climate-friendly energy, but the residual product from pyrolysis, biochar, can, in addition to carbon binding, also act as phosphorus fertiliser on agricultural fields.
