Artificial intelligence can reduce herbicide use by 75 percent

A new project will create a system in which a camera and sprayer work together to automatically recognise weeds in the field and only spray when necessary.

The WelFur protocol is now available for all European fur breeders

From January 2017, fur animal welfare assessment according to the WelFur protocol will be available for all European fur breeders. The WelFur protocols were developed by scientists from Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University together with five other countries.

Is grass the new gold?

Green fields of grass instead of golden cornfields can help reduce Denmark’s emission of climate gasses by as much as 20 percent but will require further development of current technologies and changes in agricultural practices.

Food with a pedigree is the new black

Information about the origin of a food can act as a stamp of quality if the food has a certain character. Development of more provenance Danish foods will now be given an extra push.

Chicken or beef? Urine reveals what you eat

Based on a urine sample, researchers from the Department of Food Science at Aarhus University can differentiate between intake of chicken and beef. This is useful knowledge for future investigations into the interaction between diet and human health.

Five tips to reduce weeds in organic fields

The prevalence of weeds in organic fields can be reduced by following five trial-based practical rules.

Denmark produces food with the one of the world’s lowest climate footprints. However, we need further reductions and we should cooperate with other EU countries to achieve this, Professor Jørgen E. Olesen says. Photo: Janne Hansen

Danish agriculture can reduce greenhouse gases

With targeted efforts, the Danish agricultural sector can meet the EU requirements regarding the reduction of climate gasses while maintaining food production. More research is necessary to reduce costs.

Four per 1000 – is that a good idea?

Soil can store carbon, which is a significant element in dealing with the human contributions to the greenhouse gas balance. The question is whether Danish farm land can store sufficient amounts of carbon to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions significantly.

Food is inextricably linked with climate

All our foods affect the climate. By adding actual figures to the impact of the production of individual foods, scientists can help consumers, farmers and society as a whole to make better decisions.
