Researchers and advisors from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden have shared knowledge and experiences on how to improve and sustain soil health in Nordic agricultural soils.
The project "Network– Sustain Nordic soil health" (NetSH) has focused on sharing low-tech methods for soil-health evaluation and improvement.
NORSØK engaged in European research-cooperation to find replacements for the use of peat in soil production
The use of peat for soil-production creates large climate emissions and threatens vulnerable bog areas where the peat is harvested. At the same time it is a challenge to find a good alternatives that growers can trust.
The Norwegian Centre for Organic Agriculture (NORSØK) is active in this work, and recently arranged a...
Karbon i jordbruksjord er et hett forskningtema der man ser etter positive effekter som økte avlinger, forbedret jordhelse og klimagevinster ved økt karbonmengde i jorda.
I prosjektet «Karboninnhold og biologisk aktivitet i eng- og potetjord (K-BEP)» skal man finne ut hvor stabilt karbon er og hvordan det oppfører seg i jorda ved dyrki...
Twenty-five people active in research, extension, certification and industry related to organic production came together in October 2019 to discuss inputs used in organic growing in Norway, and possible effects of phasing out common inputs such as conventional manure, and copper for plant protection. Experienced advisors warned against phasing out any inputs from already...
- - 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Norwegian Centre for Organic Agriculture (NORSØK), which now again is an active national centre of expertise. This is a good time for NORSØK to once again start its own research, development and information activities, says Turid Strøm – the centre’s managing director since 4 January 2016.

VerdifULL: How can we boost the value of lower-grade wool and increase the share of first-class wool?
- SoCaPro. About one fourth of the potatoes and carrots the packing centrals receive are sorted out because they do not meet the requirements for fresh food for sale. In this pilot project we want to investigate if discarded potatoes and carrots ensiled with probiotic bacteria may have a potential as feed products.

Improved estimation and mitigation of nitrous oxide emissions and soil carbon storage from crop residues (ResidueGas)
- The purpose of this project is to suggest measures that can improve the environmental effects of and reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases from dairy production, and to see this in connection with the farm’s economic sustainability. Target groups include farmers and farm organisations, agricultural advisers, agricultural and environmental authorities and agricultural politicians.
