With a focus on deep rooting the knowledge gained contribute to the development of systems that:
In addition, the results contribute to the understanding of the limitations of current agricultural practices and may inspire for change even if it will be less radical than the ideas studied within this project.
Finally, the public at large may find these topics interesting. Moreover, it is fascinating to observe live roots in their natural environment – which is now possible with the unique research facilities at Højbakkegård in Denmark.
