Antimicrobial-free organic production seems within reach

Production without the use of antimicrobials can be within reach for many organic farms with a targeted health-promoting effort. A recent report from Aarhus University examines the possibilities of establishing organic production concepts for dairy and pig farming without using antimicrobials. The report also mentions the importance of rethinking…

New list of high-risk pests is available

Researchers at Aarhus University have prepared a list of the organisms that pose the greatest risk to Danish greenhouse crops.

The Danish horse breed Knabstrupper is one of the traditional  breeds that is targeted for conservation.

Focus on technology and future farming

The Department of Agroecology has extensive collaboration with the industry. An example of this is the collaboration with CEO Ole Green, Agrointelli. Ole Green is the department’s recently appointed honorary professor and will give his inaugural lecture in October 2017.

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.

Intensive cereal farming depletes soil carbon, degrades soil fertility, reduces biodiversity, and negatively affects climate and the environment. Photo: Colourbox

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.

Well-functioning framework for school meals equals healthier children

The availability of healthy and appetizing food is a prerequisite for ensuring that children eat healthy food at school; but the social environment also plays an important role. A recent report from Aarhus University investigates what it takes to introduce healthier food habits to school classes.
