Agriculture must use help from Mother Nature

Nature can give a helping hand to avoid nitrogen loss from agriculture to the aquatic environment. This was one of several important points at an international workshop regarding landscape filters organized by Aarhus University.

Development of mini-wetlands with biofilters enters new phase

New mini-wetlands with biofilters will be established in the course of the summer and autumn of 2017 with the aim of generating more knowledge and experience regarding this particular measure against nitrogen loss to the aquatic environment.

What does it cost to remove nitrogen from farmers’ fields?

Nitrogen from farmers’ fields must not end up in the aquatic environment but what is the most cost efficient offsite solution? This question was discussed at an international workshop organised by Aarhus University.

Information is not enough – motivation is also necessary

Insight into farmer behavior, information about local conditions, research-based knowledge and appropriate policies must come together for successful implementation of conservation drainage and other landscape scale measures to reduce nutrient losses.

The wild cherry plums back on the plate

Wild cherry plums, European crab apple (wild apple) and blackthorn. The wild Danish plants are a hit in the Nordic kitchen, and an actual production based on these plants could offer a renewal in the Danish fruit industry. This is the conclusion in a research project which has resulted in a number of recipes involving the wild raw materials.
