Predicting the growth and quality of silage maize using models and spectroscopy

The aim of this project is to use ecophysiological modelling based methods to predict agronomic and quality variables of silage maize in Sweden. Background Maize has become a major crop in many parts

Oats for more sustainable milk production and a better environment

Variation in enteric methane (CH4) emissions in lactating dairy cows has been attributed to both animal and dietary factors. Several strategies for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) including


The CORE Organic Cofund project MIX-ENABLE aims to deepen our understanding of organic mixed livestock farming (i.e. integrating two or more animal species) in Europe, to find sustainable and robust

Milk tasting of blueberry

The taste and smell of milk can sometimes be disrupted. One of the problems is when the milk has the scent and taste of blueberries. This can affect the quality of an entire milk silo at the dairy

Grazing under northern conditions

Grazing can be a cheap way of feeding and, as the growing season gets longer, the possibility for increased use of this resource in northern areas is improving. There are however not many studies or

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. During the project the mechanistic model

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

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. An optimal level means a good yield with high crude protein content in

Röbäcksdalen Research Station and Röbäcksdalens Research dairy farm

We carry out research and monitoring in a variety of areas such as agricultural science, ecology, climatology, phenology, geochemistry, biology, agroecology, soil science, animal science, food


The sample prep lab is situated at the field station at Röbäcksdalen. It includes a sample preparation room, drying cabinets and a milling room. In the field station's office building there is also a

Spectral lab

Spectral techniques are becoming more available and useful for measuring things in a non-destructive way. At Röbäcksdalen we have different types of spectral techniques available for use. The
