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…
