Scientists want to climate-secure vegetable production in Ghana

Vegetable production in Ghana is threatened by climate change with higher temperatures and longer drought periods. Researchers from Aarhus University, in collaboration with several Ghanaian universities, will investigate how to make farmers and vegetable production less sensitive to climate change and future-proof vegetable production in the…

New solutions for improved agriculture in Africa

Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have just completed a research project in Ghana, which points to new solutions to increase crop yield in African agriculture, and thus can slow the rate of deforestation. The project has shown that irrigation as well as production and use of biochar can increase yields, as well as…

The cow favours natural over synthetic vitamin E for the cow milk

When the cow is fed grass with a naturally high vitamin E content, the milk’s content of vitamin E is higher than when the cow is primarily fed feed containing synthetic vitamin E. The explanation is that the cow favours natural vitamin E over synthetic vitamin E. This is what studies conducted by researchers at AU Foulum show. The results have…

Do rider weight and balance affect horse welfare?

It seems like the rider’s weight does not affect the horse’s welfare as much previously expected. Neither the horse’s stress hormone level, heart rate nor behaviour was affected during moderate work when the rider gained 25% weight in a project conducted by Aarhus University. However, the horses showed signs of discomfort and stress if the rider’s…
