Story 11.03.2009 Now food companies are able to determine the extent of the CO2 emissions from their products and develop a plan for reducing the emissions. This will become a necessary tool in future where environmental performance will become a competitive parameter. This also applies to food products.
Story 10.03.2009 There is room for many new technological innovations for future farmers. AgroTech has just demonstrated a prototype of a special type of glasses – the Farmer glasses.
Project 10.03.2009 There is an increasing interest in the field of fibre crops in Europe. New processing plants are emerging in Britain and Germany, and there is an increasing demand for fibre crops like flax and industrial hemp.
Project 24.02.2009 The use of pesticides is a controversial issue in Denmark. Consequently, we are constantly working to reduce the use of pesticides to the benefit of the environment. At the same time as reducing the use of pesticides, precision application also contributes to reducing the costs paid by each farmer. Learn more about the project: Optimal spraying practice by use of the latest precision technologies.
In our opinion 05.02.2009 In 2008, the Danish Parliament passed a renewable energy act. This act is a step in the right direction and our target of 20 % of energy generated in Denmark to come from renewable sources by 2020 is achievable. But there are many sides to this issue.
In our opinion 05.02.2009 While export markets demand food traceability, information about origin and producer is manipulated like never before. The problems of fraud also threaten Danish food industry. Is there hope ahead for the industry?
Project 31.01.2009 The risk of infection is high on poultry farms. Read more about our work with management systems and technologies that break the transmission cycle of disease in poultry.
Project 31.01.2009 Retailers and consumers demand documentation of food products’ climate impact. Learn about how we perform life cycle assessments and generate ideas on how to reduce CO2 emissions.
Project 31.01.2009 Automatic monitoring is a necessity on the large farms of today. AgroTech has participated in the development of a system which converts large amounts of data into simple, visual key figures. Read more about the system.
Project 31.01.2009 AgroTech has a vision of providing Danish farmers with contextual information, regardless of where they are. Read about the “farmer glasses”.
