NJV's research includes soil, plant and animal sciences. The department's finished research projects are listed on this page. Click on a project to learn more about it and to see who is the responsible researcher.
- Modelling barley and oat production for improved management and reduced risk Cereal cultivation is a major share of agricultural production in northern European countries. Dependency of agricultural production on climate factors make agriculture an uncertain profession considering projected climate in coming decades. Such uncertainties have been observed in the recent past with inter-annual climatic variability and thus the crop yield.
- Wet Grain in Package New method for packing, storing and handling of crimped ensiled grain.
- Deep litter for sheep - plant nutrients and comparion of bedding materials The aim of the project was to quantify the plant nutrient content and nutrient losses of two types of deep litter (cereal straw and reed canary grass) used in Swedish lamb production.
- Different fertilizing regimes for peat/oat whole crop forage The aim of the project is to find an optimal level of nitrogen fertilisation for whole crop harvests of pea/oat mixtures.
- Spring turnip rapeseed - a field study A study was made at farms in Västerbotten and Norrbotten to see how they produce spring turnip rape seed.
- AnimalSense AnimalSense is a Botnia Atlantica-project within the EU InterReg program.
- Optimisation of Reed Canary Grass as a native European Energy Crop Our overall aim therefore in the ORNATE project is to create a step change in the improvement of reed canary grass as a sustainable biomass crop for energy purposes by creating the tools, germplasm and market intelligence to drive a state of the art breeding programme within a public - private partnership.
- NP-balans This project is a collaboration between Novia University of Applied Sciences (Vasa, Finland) and the Department of Agricultural Research for Northern Sweden at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Umeå, Sweden). The project time is 15.1.2016 - 31.12.2018.
- Development of the variety trials for silage maize in Sweden The aim of the project was to create a basis for a decision support system för cultivation of silage maize in Sweden, based on varieties and risk management.
- Decision support tool for silage maize cultivation in Sweden The aim of this project is to form a group to further work on the development of a project proposal for EIP agri. The innovation linked to this project will focus on the development of a decision support system for silage maize that would make this crop more cost efficient and sustainable.
