Keeping one step ahead of resistant fungi

European researchers are joining forces to keep tabs on the spread of resistance in the fungi that cause the wheat disease septoria tritici blotch and to develop control methods that can help reduce dependence on fungicides.

Generating knowledge on biofilters’ ability to reduce nitrogen leaching

New research results indicate that constructed wetlands with biofilters can be effective measures to reduce nitrogen emissions from field drains to the aquatic environment. The Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark are now supporting further research in the area.

Increased knowledge required on production of protein from green biomasses

Green biomasses hold a significant potential as an alternative to traditional protein sources. However, a recent report establishes the fact that further knowledge is required on the economic and environmental consequences in case an actual commercial production is implemented.
