Risk models may reduce the use of fungicides against septoria

Researchers from Aarhus University have together with SEGES developed a risk model for septoria tritici blotch in wheat to support farmer's decisions about when fungicides are needed. The researchers, in collaboration with different Nordic and Baltic partners have tested the validity of two risk models.

Cover crops release of nitrogen investigated

The mineralisation of cover crops releases nitrogen for future crops, but it may also cause leaching of nitrate which can be harmful to the aquatic environment. Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have investigated different cover crops and how they are turned over in the soil and how this may release nitrogen to…

Great opportunities for Denmark to secure self-sufficiency in protein

Grass protein can replace imported soy protein in compound feed for livestock. However, a complete transition from soy to grass will require an optimization of grass cultivation as well as of the extraction technology applied. In addition, the grassland areas should be increased, and this will benefit the environment and make Danish agriculture…

The effects of different types of fibre-rich feed on welfare in broiler breeder pullets

Reduced energy content in the standard feed combined with a daily allocation of roughage may be the way to go to prevent problems of hunger and unsatisfied behavioural needs in conventional broiler parents. This is what the results of a comprehensive study show. The study was conducted by Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University, at the…

New report from the Pesticide Leaching Alert System (VAP) focuses on the period 2016-2018

The new VAP report focuses on the period from July 2016 to June 2018, when 18 pesticides were sprayed to test the leaching of one or more degradation products. For six of the pesticides, the leaching of the pesticide itself was also investigated.

Twenty years with the unique Danish Alert System for Leaching Pesticides to Groundwater (VAP)

The warning system for leaching of pesticides to groundwater (VAP) was created 20 years ago on the basis of a political desire to ensure the quality of drinking water and groundwater. VAP has since delivered results on the risk of leaching of pesticides and their degradation products from the test fields and thus new knowledge for the regulation…

New knowledge to contribute to the development of future infant formula

Breast milk has properties that infant formula does not – however, researchers from the Department of Food Science at Aarhus University will try to change this by means of a special type of carbohydrates that may help stimulate important microorganisms in the infant gut. A new study documents – for the first time – synergy effects between said…
