Agricultural and horticultural test environments

Två jordiga händer arbetar i jorden med gröna växter runtomkring

Our test environments for agriculture and horticulture involve new sustainable solutions that are developed with a focus on increasing biodiversity, reducing CO2 emissions, reducing eutrophication and developing a circular bioeconomy.

They provide the opportunity to test new technical solutions, develop new working methods and to carry out trials of different crops. We can also help with feed trials on different animal species or develop new circular systems (by biorefining a grass crop, for example) in an agricultural or horticultural setting. Traditional grains such as wheat, oats, rye and barley are cultivated here, but also new crops and trials of landraces.
