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.

World Soil Day focuses on the very basis of life: soil

Research at Aarhus University contributes to protecting agricultural soil, which is challenged by modern management. The UN’s World Soil Day on December 5 focuses on the threats to soil quality.

Food fiction - when are food product claims misleading?

How do you examine if consumers are being misled by clever ad copy on groceries? It is actually more difficult than you might think. Researchers at the MAPP Centre at Aarhus University have a useful method on the way.

Researchers from Aarhus University have provided input to development of an Agromek three-star New Product

One of Agromek’s three-star European New Products in 2016 was developed with input from researchers from Aarhus University. The new product is a system that automatically controls sowing depth with the aid of sensors.

The insects are coming!

Denmark will be the pioneering country for sustainable industrial insect production for food and feed. This is the goal of a new project in which researchers from Aarhus University, in collaboration with colleagues and the industry, will use organic by-products and waste products to raise insects on a large scale.

Legumes lure certain bacteria

Legumes can to a certain extent determine which nitrogen-fixing bacteria they want to enter into a symbiotic relationship with. This knowledge can benefit agriculture.

Moving away from salty cheese

The salt content of the classical Danish cheese Danbo can be reduced by more than 25 percent without no adverse effect on the cheese’s taste or texture. This recent research finding may help the cheese obtain the official Danish health quality stamp “Nøglehulsmærket”.
