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.

Organic broilers must have dry feet

Despite having access to an outdoor area, having more room, and exercising more than conventional broilers, organic broilers still have problems with foot pad lesions just like their conventional brethren. A new report from DCA describes causes and proposes possible preventive measures.

Hitting the bull’s eye on crop nutrient requirements

Researchers from Aarhus University have developed a method to match crop nitrogen requirements more precisely than ever before. The method can reduce agricultural nitrogen emissions and simultaneously optimise yield.

There is potential for agriculture in Greenland

Global warming means that Greenland will have longer and warmer summers. This can pave the way for new possibilities for agriculture – but there is a lack of knowledge about all sorts of things ranging from optimal cultivation methods to good logistics solutions and sustainable energy consumption.

Why do sows die – and what can we do about it?

Sow mortality on Danish farms has fallen in recent years, but there is a need for more measures. A new DCA report from the Department of Animal Science charts causes and possible strategies for reducing mortality further.
