Climate friendly agri­culture for milk, meat and egg production

Resource efficient use of animal manures and organic residues create valuable plant nutrients and an environmental friendly agriculture. RISE conduct research and innovations of technology and methods to minimize environmental and climate impact from agriculture and become profitable for the farmer.

Sustainable reuse of plant nutrients

Animal manures and organic residues are a resource in crop production and can decrease agriculture's dependence of fossil fuels and limited resources. RISE conduct applied research and development of technology and methods to value plant nutrients in animal manures and other organic residues. Test and evaluation are often conduced on commercial farms. 

Impact of agriculture on environment and climate

RISE has methodology for measuring emissions (ammonia, methane, dinitrousoxide) that continuously are adapted to evaluate new technology with the aim to achieve an environmental agriculture that also is profitable. RISE works in pilot scale to evaluate different measures to decrease emissions from manure storages. RISE evaluate different technologies and strategies in crop production in order to decrease emissions at spreading of animal manures.

Cooperation between industry and academy

RISE works in close cooperation with industry and agriculture. In our workshop we build prototypes in order to test and evaluate them in practice together with farmers. RISE also has cooperation with other research groups and competences to find solutions with synergies in order to achieve national and international environmental goals.  

Ongoing work:

  • Contents of plant nutrients and trace elements in animal manures
  • Fertilizing with animal manures and digestate from biogas production in organic and conventional farming.
  • Process technology and processing of animal manures and other organic residues, i.e. digestate and sludge from sewage plants and seafood industry
  • Measures to decrease emissions during storage of animal manures and other organic residues
  • Measures to decrease the risk of point loads of manure and trampling damages from grazing animals and outdoor rearing during winter.
