Researchers compile and review literature on plant chemical impacts on nematodes

Certain nematodes can cause great damage to crops and yields, and they can be difficult to control. Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have compiled and reviewed the literature to gain a better understanding of the nematodes and find more effective control possibilities.

Carbon is still active after 20 years in the soil

A 20-year-old experiment on Askov research station at Aarhus University has helped researchers from Aarhus University, among others, find out what happens to organic carbon, left in the soil for many years, and which organisms decompose it. The experiment shows that carbon, which has been fixed in the soil for many years, is still active and a…

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…
