Agro-Ecosystem

Research focuses on the contribution of the microbiome to carbon and nitrogen cycling in boreal agricultural systems, with wood chip bioreactors utilized as a landscape mitigation strategy to reduce losses of greenhouse gases, nutrients and pesticides to the environment.

Successful solution

  • Established four, pilot-scale wood chip bioreactor systems to study the mitigation of nutrient losses from tile-drained cropping systems.
