The climate has become more unstable and extreme and this is a challenge for our crops. This issue was discussed by researchers from a number of countries at a workshop held by the Department of Food at Aarhus University on December 6. (Have a look at the full article in Danish via the link above)
Aarhus University is at the forefront of a new research project that will pave the way for a more climate-efficient milk production. The aim of the project is to reduce the cow's emission of methane via feeding. It is also investigating the best way to implement the new climate measures and to document their effect in the future.

Researchers from Aarhus University, the University of Copenhagen and SEGES are collaborating in a new project to investigate the effects of nitrification inhibitors on nitrous oxide emissions and soil organisms. (Have a look at the full article in Danish via the link above)
iClimate researcher Jonas Elm has been awarded 6.2 Mill. DKK for his research project entitled 'Formation and Growth of Atmospheric Molecular Clusters'. In his research, Jonas aims at combining knowledge of quantum mechanics, atmospheric chemistry and machine learning in order to better understand how particles are formed and grown in the atmosphere.
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 2015, a doubling of the severely drought-affected area cannot be avoided. This is revealed in a new study just published in Science Advances. Professor of climate change and agriculture Jørgen E. Olesen from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University is a part of the international research group behind the study.
