Research areas:

  • Plant nutrition and irrigation of vegetable field crops.
  • Methods in plant nutrition to avoid deficiency or surplus fertilization, e.g. plant and soil analysis.
  • Use of green manure crops and winter cover crops to catch unused plant nutrients and to fertilize a succeeding vegetable crop.
  • Development of organic growing systems with reduced nitrate leaching and a stable water and nutrient supply.
  • Investigations in how plant nutrition may influence product quality, i.e. physiological defects and chemical composition.
  • Determine drought-sensitive growth stages and research in how drought stress may influence biomass production and product quality.
  • Investigations in improved nutrient efficiency, e.g. fertilizer placement, irrigation and an increased use of mycorrhizas.
