Nurture the soil – it’s worth it

Profitability and sustainability can go hand in hand in crop production – especially if cropping systems that protect the soil are developed and applied. This is the basis for a new EU project with the participation of researchers from Aarhus University.

The connection between nitrogen utilisation and groundwater quality is clear

Nitrogen surplus from agriculture has a clear effect on the nitrogen status of the groundwater, according to 70 years of Danish measurement data.

Technology and the agriculture of the future on the agenda

Sustainability, technology and intelligent solutions go hand in hand in the agriculture of the future. The newly appointed honorary professor at the Department of Agroecology will speak about this in his inaugural lecture in October 2017.

More carbon in the soil, please

Conventional and organic crop farming can both reap the benefits of managing the soil in a more sustainable fashion, so that more carbon is added. Researchers from Aarhus University are part of a team that is developing new cropping systems to address these issues.

New honorary professor with an eye to future farming

CEO Ole Green from the company Agrointelli has been appointed Honorary Professor in technology and intelligent solution in the Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University. This strengthens the department’s connection between research and innovation. 

Professor Jørgen E. Olesen from the Department of Agroecology was one of the teachers at the Japanese-Danish summer university.

Improved predictions of crop yields under climate change now possible

An improved calculation of crop response to variations in temperature reduces the uncertainty of crop yield predictions by up to 50 percent.

Can environmental measures in Denmark lead to deforestation in other parts of the world?

A new database provides an overview of where in the world deforestation has taken place and how the land is used afterwards. One of the things the database can be used for is to assess how land use changes affect climate on the global level.

Danish seed production at the forefront

Danish farmers are eminent at producing seeds but in order to keep ahead of the competition they must be even better. Researchers from Aarhus University are partners in a project that will contribute to reducing the use of pesticides and increasing the yield in grass and spinach seed crops.
