PhD defence: What is the mechanism behind host-nematode interactions?

Mechanisms of plant-nematode interactions in natural soils are not well-known as the majority of our current findings are derived from in vitro bioassays.

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.

Liming on acidic soils reduces nitrous oxide emissions and increases yields

Researchers from Aarhus University and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences have found that when farmers apply lime to acidic fields, they can not only increase crop production, but also reduce nitrous oxide emissions and increase the soil capacity to oxidize methane, thereby contributing to climate change mitigation.
