New research findings on the harmful fungus Fusarium discussed in Riga

Fungi within the genus Fusarium cause severe problems in cereal production worldwide, due to the diseases they are causing as well as mycotoxins they produce. On the 9-10 of March, researchers from

Flower strips can give ecosystem services to strawberry cultivations

Neus Rodriguez-Gasol and Elodie Chapurlat will measure what ecosystem services flower strips can provide to strawberry fields. They have recently started their two-year post doc positions at SLU. We

Chemical communication between plants, microbes and insects

Insect pests use chemical signals (semiochemicals) to find food, hosts and mates. Accordingly, chemical communication can be used as a target for pest control. The application of semiochemicals

Flower strips, but not hedgerows, increase ecosystem services

Planting flower strips and hedgerows close to crop fields is meant to increase biodiversity and ecosystem services such as pest control and pollination. In a global synthesis an international
