In-depth knowledge of soil pathogens in greenhouse soil offers opportunities for IPM

In the intensive greenhouse cultivation of butterhead lettuce, the correct identification of soil pathogens and newly acquired insights into their potential to damage crops can help the lettuce plants to grow well but with fewer chemical treatments

Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) technologies to tackle greenhouse gas emissions from grazing cattle.

After all, enteric emissions in Flanders should be reduced by 19% by 2030 compared to 2005 (Flemish Climate Plan).Research approachIn a first phase, we look for adapted and validated measuring techniques, because it is not easy to correctly determine the digestive gases of cows on the pasture.

Methane emissions in livestock farming (enteric emissions)

These emissions form a significant part of total greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and help determine the climate impact of meat and dairy farming.

Greenhouse gases: a question of balance Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) are natural greenhouse gases. They play an important role in the quality of life on our planet by naturally retaining some of the solar energy in the atmosphere that lands on the earth.
