Grassland in crop rotations is beneficial to the climate

Within the framework of a new project, researchers from Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen and SEGES will examine whether it is possible – by means of optimization and development of integrated grassland-arable crop rotations – to increase soil carbon storage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The project is part of the climate research…

Green protein is good for pigs

Experiments carried out at Aarhus University in Foulum demonstrate that green protein extracted from clover grass is a very useful diet for pigs. This applies to both pig welfare, growth, feed utilization as well as meat quality and taste.

Study shows: Moderate nitrous oxide emissions from perennial grass for future bio-refineries despite high N input

Perennial crops are being considered as a new source of biomass for bio-refineries and sustainable energy. A new study from Department of Agroecology has determined the emission of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide.

How to achieve the best effect of local anaesthesia when castrating piglets?

As from 1 January 2018, Danish farmers were given the opportunity to anaesthetize their piglets prior to surgical castration. The use of local anaesthesia prior to castration may seem an advantage to the piglets, but administration of the aesthetic drug is not painless, it does not cover the entire painful period post-castration, and only few…

Crops for the future climate

A flood can ruin a potato harvest in just 24 hours. However, by understanding the plant's defence mechanisms against flooding, it is possible to create more crop-resistant crops that can withstand flooding. An international research team with the participation of Associate Professor Kim Hebelstrup from the Department of Molecular Biology and…

New research project may pave the way for a farewell to artificial colours in food

Based on violet carrots, Henrik Brinch-Pedersen from the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics and his collaborators will make it possible to replace more artificial colours in food with natural colours based on vegetables. The Innovation Fund has invested almost DKK 15 million (around Euro 2 million) in the project.

Climate change induced drought threatens the world's wheat production

In the coming years, a growing portion of the global wheat growing areas will be affected by drought and this will have serious consequences for the global food supply. It may lead to a significant reduction of the wheat harvest by the turn of the century. Even if global warming is limited to the 2 degrees as stipulated in the Paris Agreement of…
