Legume-based cover crops can self-regulate to reduce nitrogen loss

Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have investigated the ability of legume-based cover crop mixtures to reduce nitrate leaching losses from agriculture and found them to be self-regulating in terms of nitrogen input via biological N2 fixation and effects on nitrate leaching.

Researchers lay the genetic foundation to future ergot management in rye

How does ergot infect rye, and which genes play an important role in resisting the disease? These are questions researchers from Department of Agroecology have explored as part of an industrial post doc collaboration with Nordic Seed. The results will pave the way for better understanding of the complex mechanisms of ergot, which can be utilised…

Plants can scare away harmful nematodes

By using some very special substances called benzoxazinoids, plants such as maize can scare certain species of plant parasitic nematodes away from the roots. In other words, plants have their very own defence system, which researchers from, among others, the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have investigated.
