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.

Biofilters and mini-wetlands can 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 is supporting further research in the area.
