Targeted set-aside of agricultural land provides effective reduction of nitrogen load

According to the Ministry of Environment and Food, Denmark should reduce the nitrogen load on coastal areas by 13,000 tonnes per year. Targeted measures will according to researchers from Aarhus University be able to reduce the required amount of Danish agricultural land from 35% of Danish agricultural land to just 23%.

Wild plants climate-secure the crops of the future

Researchers from Aarhus University and their colleagues from the University of Copenhagen, will make new crops out of wild plants. Climate change and an increasing population make it imperative to find alternatives to the crops that today feeds the earth. The Novo Nordisk Foundation has allocated DKK 60 million to the research project, which will…

Crops for the future climate

A flood can ruin a potato harvest in just 24 hours. However, by understanding the plant's defence mechanisms against flooding, it is possible to create more resistant crops that can withstand flooding. An international research team with the participation of Associate Professor Kim Hebelstrup from the Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University…

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…
