Methane from cow burps can be reduced by a two-front approach

Combing a cow’s own genetics with strategies that target changes in her rumen flora may be able to reduce methane emissions more effectively than by only selecting for low methane-emitting cows.

Soil compaction should receive attention on World Soil Day

Soil compaction below the plough layer is an increasing problem due to heavy farm machinery. For the past five years, Aarhus University has focused on this threat in an EU project about soil quality. This work has provided important knowledge about compaction mechanisms and the possibilities of mitigating the problem.

Minister gains new insight into agricultural research

Sustainable energy systems and autonomous machines were high on the agenda when the Minister for Higher Education and Science visited AU Foulum.

The Y15 gene in wheat protects wheat against yellow rust. The columns show what happens 1, 7 and 14 days after infection with yellow rust on the cellular level and in the plant. The pictures in the second and fourth rows are from wheat that contains the Y15 gene, and show clearly how well it protects against yellow rust. Photo: Nature Communications
