From 1999 to 2002 she worked at Estonian Agricultural University. During the years 2000 – 2001 she worked as senior researcher on post-doc project revealing two major discoveries about calcium deficiency in leafy vegetable crops. From 2003 to 2008 she worked as administrative worker in other institutions.

From 2008 to 2020, she has worked as senior researcher at the Estonian Crop Research Institute (former Jogeva Plant Breeding Institute). The main field of her work is scientific research in vegetable production on open land and in protected areas. She has published numerous review articles in addition to research articles in her field.

Since 2021 she works at NPO Veggies Cultivation. The aim of NPO Veggies Cultivation is to carry through research and development activities in the field of vegetable agrotechnics and to introduce the innovative solutions of vegetable growing technologies in Estonia, Europe and all over the world.

She speaks Estonian, English, Norwegian, and some Russian. The main field of her work is scientific research in vegetable production on open land and in protected areas. She has published numerous high-quality peer-reviewed and research-based articles as the first author. She has also published many research monographs – books in English and one general vegetable cultivation book in the Estonian language. She has been invited speaker in Estonia and around the globe, has organized conferences, has been in scientific committees, and is a member of editorial boards of international scientific journals.

Fellowships:

  1. 1992 - 1992 Scholarship (three-month agricultural practice), Intercultural Programs, Inc (AFS) organization/ Denmark (3 months)

  2. 1993 – 1994 Scholarship, The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University of Denmark, Study of horticulture, Danish Government Scholarship/ Denmark (one study year)

  3. 1995 - 1999 Ph. D. fellowship, Norwegian Agricultural University, Norwegian Government Scholarship/ Norway (four study years)

Discoveries by Dr. Margit Olle:

1. (first innovative idea): Plants were grown under a far-red filter, which filters out much of far-red light. Far-red light is responsible for the elongation of plants. When grown under a far-red filter to remove much of the far-red light then plants remain more compact (knowledge from Japan). With far-red filter plants contain more Calcium and show fewer Ca deficiency symptoms (Margit Olle discovery, not a patent, unfortunately).

2. (second innovative idea): Negative DIF is when the night temperature is higher than the day temperature. In such condition’s plants stay more compact (Roar Moe from Norway have lots of papers about it). Under negative DIF conditions plants contain more Calcium and there are fewer Ca deficiency symptoms on plants (Margit Olle discovery, not a patent, unfortunately).

3. (third innovative idea): Effective microorganisms (EM) improve the quality of tomato transplants because they remain compact with greater stem diameter (Margit Olle discovery, not a patent, unfortunately).
