Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

Her primary areas of investigation include Dry matter, Agronomy, Animal science, Lolium perenne and Dairy cattle. She has researched Dry matter in several fields, including Silage and Ruminant. Her study in the fields of Grazing, Weed and Field experiment under the domain of Agronomy overlaps with other disciplines such as N alkanes and Energy method.

Her Animal science research incorporates themes from Sugar, Perennial plant, Digestion and Cultivar. Her Dairy cattle study incorporates themes from Dairy industry, Coefficient of variation and Milk production. Her Polyunsaturated fatty acid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Unsaturated fatty acid, Rumenic acid and Saturated fatty acid.

Her most cited work include:

  • Evenness drives consistent diversity effects in intensive grassland systems across 28 European sites (227 citations)
  • Modifying milk composition through forage (183 citations)
  • Ecosystem function enhanced by combining four functional types of plant species in intensively managed grassland mixtures: a 3‐year continental‐scale field experiment (160 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Anjo Elgersma mainly investigates Agronomy, Perennial plant, Lolium perenne, Cultivar and Dry matter. Her Agronomy study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Dairy cattle. Her studies examine the connections between Perennial plant and genetics, as well as such issues in Neutral Detergent Fiber, with regards to Canopy.

In Lolium perenne, Anjo Elgersma works on issues like Animal science, which are connected to Meal and Botany. While the research belongs to areas of Cultivar, Anjo Elgersma spends her time largely on the problem of Randomized block design, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Puccinia coronata and Tiller. She interconnects Silage and Animal nutrition in the investigation of issues within Dry matter.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (90.00%)
  • Perennial plant (64.29%)
  • Lolium perenne (58.57%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2018)?

  • Agronomy (90.00%)
  • Dairy farming (8.57%)
  • Dairy cattle (35.71%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Anjo Elgersma mainly focuses on Agronomy, Dairy farming, Dairy cattle, Agricultural science and Grassland. Weed and Forage are the core of her Agronomy study. Anjo Elgersma works mostly in the field of Dairy farming, limiting it down to topics relating to Agroforestry and, in certain cases, Fodder crops, Woody plant and Fodder, as a part of the same area of interest.

Her Dairy cattle research incorporates elements of Grazing and Milk production. The concepts of her Grazing study are interwoven with issues in Barn, Animal science and Pasture. In her work, Weed control, Biodiversity, Relative species abundance, Abundance and Sowing is strongly intertwined with Monoculture, which is a subfield of Grassland.

Between 2014 and 2018, her most popular works were:

  • Weed suppression greatly increased by plant diversity in intensively managed grasslands: A continental-scale experiment (26 citations)
  • Major shifts in species’ relative abundance in grassland mixtures alongside positive effects of species diversity in yield: a continental-scale experiment (20 citations)
  • Quantifying sustainability of dairy farms with the DAIRYMAN-sustainability-index. (4 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Grassland, Factors of production, Dairy cattle, Agricultural science and Dairy farming. Her Grassland study is related to the wider topic of Agronomy. Her Agronomy study often links to related topics such as Agroecosystem.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Grassland management, Environmental Sustainability Index, Sustainability and Milk production in addition to Factors of production. Her work deals with themes such as Grazing and Environmental impact assessment, which intersect with Dairy cattle. Her Monoculture research integrates issues from Weed control, Ecosystem, Species diversity and Sowing.
