Plants can reduce nitrous oxide emissions from flooded grasslands

Nitrous oxide emissions increase significantly when grasslands are flooded repeatedly, according to new research from the Soil Biology Group, Wageningen University, and the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University. The researchers found that certain plant species can help mitigate nitrous oxide emissions in flooded grasslands.

Anti-resistance strategies are important in the fight against Septoria

Fungicide resistance in Septoria in winter wheat is spreading across Europe, and researchers from Aarhus University have found a pattern in the spread by examining samples from different northern European countries. Samples from Denmark and Sweden show that over the past approximately 10 years there has been a large increase in resistance to the…

Will consumers accept healthier meat products?

It is possible to produce healthier alternatives to the processed meat products, which are in high demand in Denmark as well as in the rest of Europe, but how do consumers respond to the different options, and which ones do they prefer? In a new project funded by the European Innovation and Technology (EIT) Food, researchers from the MAPP Centre…

Are the food ingredients of the future plant-based?

In collaboration with NEXUS A/S, researchers from the Department of Food Science, Aarhus University, have studied the possibility of using chickpea water, also called aquafaba, in foods where egg white is typically used. This has been done by focusing on the functional properties of aquafaba, and the results are promising.
