Department of Crop Production Ecology

How can we combine improved quality and quantity of crop production with enhanced ecosystem services and reduced negative environmental impact? The Department of Crop Production Ecology contributes to the solutions by our research, collaboration and education in sustainable crop production. We focus on innovative, multi-functional cropping systems for food, feed, fuel and fiber.

Take a course with us

We provide education in the fields of biology, ecology and production of cultivated crops. The courses provide knowledge on how production methods and cultivation systems affect yield level, end product and the surrounding environment. Knowledge that is important in the shaping of sustainable agricultural systems.
