Efforts will always be made to limit nitrogen and phosphorus excetions and emissions to the environment in an economical way.Research approachThrough 3 ILVO animal trials and 7 specific cases on practicing farms, protein saving strategies will be evaluated for animal performance, production, protein savings, feed efficiency, cost efficiency and environmental
OPTImizing Protein Nutrition in cattle to tackle the N- and P-excretions to the environment in an economical way
In addition to the traditional morphological identification of marine organisms, we focus on metabarcoding and eDNA (environmental DNA). That means we use genetic traces in the seawater and the seabed to monitor the biodiversity of different ecosystem groups and to map the state of fish stocks and their functional connectivity.
Main research questionCYBELE is a 3-year project to demonstrate how high performance computing (HPC) and Big Data analysis can help revolutionize agriculture and boost precision farming in order to create social, economic and environmental benefits.
Fostering Precision Agriculture and Livestock Farming through secure access to large-scale HPC-enabled virtual industrial experimentation environment empowering scalable Big Data analytics
Because the new approach to farming can be reinforced by similar changes in the management of the broader landscape environment around the agricultural fields, ILVO also coordinates initiatives where e.g. municipalities, private individuals or landowners plan for FAB-promoting effects.
FABulous Farmers employ Functional Agrobiodiversity as a nature-based solution to reduce use of natural and material resources, delivering benefits for farmers, society and the environment in the NWE.
We guarantee an open environment where collaboration andexchange of ideas is encouraged. We develop and test prototypes and evaluate their performance. If we encounter a problem, we try to gain an understanding of what went wrong by listening to the different voices and perspectives of our stakeholders.
They are used for essential oils in cosmetics and pharmaceutics or as a seed oil that offers a renewable and environmental friendly alternative for the dyeing and textile industry. Because the crop is in such high demand, it would be interesting to mechanize the marigold harvesting process for farmers and processing companies alike.
