Deep Frontier

  • Challenging one last frontier: Understanding and improving deep rooting 

About the project

The project Deep Frontier aims at increasing the exploitation of the subsoil resources by deep roots in order to enhance food production in a sustainable way.

The results will be able to contribute to climate change mitigation and improved soil iodiversity through the increased organic matter input to the soil, especially to deep soil layers.

Masser af viden om de dybe rødder graves frem i den kommende vækstsæson

Deep Frontier projektet kigger på afgrødernes muligheder for at udnytte rodvækst i de dybe jordlag. Projektet har nu fået etableret de nødvendige faciliteter, herunder de fire meter høje rodtårne og markparcellerne i Deep Root Lab. Forsøgene går nu for alvor i gang i den kommende vækstsæson.

Stor interesse for røddernes hemmelige liv

Hvordan undersøger man rødder i fire og fem meters dybde? Hvad er perspektiverne i afgrøder med dybe rødder, og hvad betyder det for kulstoflagring, udbytte, sygdomme etc.? Det kunne man få indblik i, da projektet DeepFrontier for nylig holdt en velbesøgt Rodens Dag.
