Have precipitation extremes and annual totals been increasing in the world’s dry regions over the last 60 years?
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-25)
Daily precipitation extremes and annual totals have increased in large parts of the global land area over the past decades. These observations are consistent with theoretical considerations of a warming climate. However, ...
N2O emission from organic barley cultivation as affected by green manure management
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
Legumes are an important source of nitrogen in stockless organic cereal production. However, substantial amounts of N can be lost from legume-grass leys prior to or after incorporation as green manure (GM). Here we report ...

Large areas of cultivated grasslands have been abandoned in Norway and are no longer used for production. Knowing that access to spring and autumn pastures is a limiting factor for sheep farmers, this study aims at testing ...
Regional differences in technical efficiency and technological gap of Norwegian dairy farms: a stochastic meta-frontier model
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-30)
This paper compares technical efficiencies (TEs) and technological gap ratios (TGRs) for dairy farms in regions of Norway, accounting for differences in working environments. We used the state-of-the-art stochastic ...
