Grassland in crop rotations is beneficial to the climate

Within the framework of a new project, researchers from Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen and SEGES will examine whether it is possible – by means of optimization and development of integrated grassland-arable crop rotations – to increase soil carbon storage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The project is part of the climate research…

Study shows: Moderate nitrous oxide emissions from perennial grass for future bio-refineries despite high N input

Perennial crops are being considered as a new source of biomass for bio-refineries and sustainable energy. A new study from Department of Agroecology has determined the emission of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide.
