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

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

Low carbon and energy efficient innovations for more climate neutral greenhouse horticulture

Main research questionENERGLIK wants to show how climate-neutral greenhouse farming and economically profitable greenhouse farming can track together. The challenge for this sector is no small one: The climate objectives aim for a 44% reduction in energy consumption by 2030.

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 looked for adapted and validated measuring techniques, because it is not easy to correctly determine the digestive gases of cows on the pasture.

Developing and testing a framework for the design of harmonized, context-specific Monitoring, Reporting and Verification systems for soil Carbon and greenhouse gas balances by Agricultural activities

Main research questionHow can we properly and efficiently monitor, report and verify changes in carbon stocks in European soils (and in woody biomass), as well as greenhouse gas emissions from soils?

Webinar: for companies that develop ammonia sensors

Continuous emissions measurement at the local level ILVO’s Environmental Engineering research team has more than 10 years of experience in measuring emissions (ammonia, dust, greenhouse gases, odor) from stables. Commissioned by the Flemish government, the team sets up measurement campaigns to determine emission factors from livestock houses.

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.
