SLU Lövsta Field Research Station

Last changed: 24 April 2024

SLU Lövsta Field Research Station runs about 70 agricultural field trials in the Uppsala area. Many of the trials are connected to research projects at SLU, but we also welcome external missions.

We offer:

  • opportunities for field research in agricultural sciences such as crop cultivation, soil science, biology, agroecology and environmental science;
  • expertise in soil mechanics and soil cultivation, plant nutrition, water conservation, agrarian cropping systems, plant ecology and weed biology;
  • field research in conventional as well as organic systems;
  • access to long-term field trials.

The heart of Lövsta field research station is Funbo-Lövsta 10 kilometres east of Uppsala, where we have our machinery and storage facilities. This is also where our field patrol is stationed.
Lövsta field research station is a collaboration between the Department of Crop Production Ecology and the Department of Soil and Environment.

If you are planning a field trial or have any questions, please contact John Lövkvist (contact details below).

Routines for contacts during crop growing season (April 15 - October 15):

  • If you are not sure who to talk to, contact the manager.
  • make a phone call if the matter is urgent!
  • Text an SMS or call us by phone if the matter is moderately urgent.
  • Send e-mail if the matter is NOT of urgent nature.
  •  In cases of changed plans etcetera, follow up an urgent phone call with an e-mail or a regular letter.

Our availability when it comes to answering phone calls is generally good, but during some operations in the field it is not possible for us to divide the attention. Try calling again in a little while. In case the person cannot be reached, try to contact another of the field station's employees.
