Fish wastes - origins, forms and functions as fertilizers in agricultural systems

In a future, circular economy, it is desirable that mineral nutrients from fish wastes are utilized for plant production in agriculture and horticulture. Challenges related to the closing of the loop

Biostimulants in aqua wastes

Fish wastes contain the essential mineral nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) and natural biostimulants (BS) that are required for plant growth. However, its value as organic fertilizers (e.g. BS)

Development of intelligent control systems for greenhouse lighting system with a high proportion of local renewable energy

The project will develop an intelligent control system to optimize the operation of greenhouse lighting systems with a high proportion of local renewable energy by means of adaptive control

Integrated nutrient supply

When using organic fertilizer sources, it is hard to match the supply of nutrients with the plant’s demand. This is especially pronounced for nitrogen. In this project, the possibilities for
