PhD-defence: Advanced mass spectrometry explains how plant roots and micro-organisms interact

During his PhD studies, Kourosh Hooshmand worked with advanced mass spectrometry-based techniques to uncover the molecular mechanism underlying complex plant-beneficial microbes-pathogen tripartite interactions that confer indirect plant defence. Kourosh Hooshmand identified various metabolic markers associated with plant host defence…

Extended lactation: Which cows are suitable?

Intentional delay of the cow’s first insemination after calving results in an extended lactation. However, not all cows manage an extended lactation equally well. A new research project at Aarhus University examines the possibility of selecting suitable and unsuitable cows in advance.

New large centre on agricultural production and biodiversity

AU researchers receive a total of DKK 60 million kroner for a new 6-year-old centre called SustainScapes. The centre will work with research-based solutions on how biodiversity can be future-proofed in a changing climate and in a world with an ever-increasing need for resources. The Novo Nordisk Foundation provides the grant as part of the "Novo…

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…
