This video abstract introduces the paper entitled "Soil and crop management practices and the water regulation functions of soils".
ILVO is being called upon to develop tools that objectively measure and assess the impact of forest agriculture systems.
More biodiversity: how to achieve it, with what agronomic outcome.
In the LIFE CarbonCounts project (LIFE20 PRE/BE/019), we explored carbon farming schemes that have the potential to be feasible, reliable and cost efficient for Flanders, the northern region of Belgiu...
In 2022, ILVO began breeding what many people know as a "weed": plantain. Part of the reason is the growing demand for biodiversity in our agricultural grasslands.
Quinoa, soy, chickpea and dry bean, intended for the human food chain, are hardly grown in our region at present, if at all. But they represent promising new agricultural crops in ILVO's cultivation a...
On a technology test field, ILVO conducted an unusual potato-precision farming trial during the 2022 growing season. Every three days, a drone with a camera took images of the plants (and any weeds).
More legumes on our Flemish fields and on our plates. That is the goal of the new PEUL-CHAIN project.
How can a farmer guard against climate change? To answer that question, Sarah Garré, researcher at ILVO, plowed through more than 100 years of agricultural research. You can read the harvest of her r...
