  1. 1. Candidate genes for resistance and susceptibility to the bird cherry-oat aphid (Rhopalosiphum padi L.) in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

    Författare :Sara Mehrabi; Lisbeth Jonsson; Inger Åhman; Lisa Beste; Benedicte Riber Albrectsen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; aphid resistance; aphid susceptibility; Rhopalosiphum padi; Myzus persicae; Hordeum vulgare; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : Bird cherry-oat aphid (Rhopalosiphum padi L.) is an important pest on spring-sown cereals. The aphid reduces yield and can act as a vector of barley yellow dwarf virus. R. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Sustainable Land and Water Management for a Greener Future : Large-scale insights in support of Agroecological Intensification

    Författare :Luigi Piemontese; Fernando Jaramillo; Maria Cristina Rulli; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Sammanfattning : The challenge of producing more food in times of climate change, degraded land and scares water resources is calling for a radical transformation of agriculture. Sustainable agricultural intensification is the process of increasing the productivity of farms while preserving functional ecosystems. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Lipids in seeds of oat (Avena spp.), a potential oil crop : content, quality, metabolism, and possibilities for improvement

    Författare :Svetlana Leonova; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : New oil crops with high yield and oil content are urgently needed. Oat is the only cereal that accumulates substantial amount of lipids in the endosperm. This gives it potential as an oil crop, which could address both nutritional and environmental concerns of modern society. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Development of Lepidium campestre into a new oil and catch crop

    Författare :Emelie Ivarson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : A growing world population and dwindling fossil oil reserves demand an increase in the world plant oil production. The possibility to increase the area of cultivated land is limited due to the shortage of arable land. Also, the possibility for increasing the oil content in the limited number of cultivated oil crops is restricted. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Metabolic engineering for production of complex lipids in tobacco (Nicotiana benthamiana) leaves and rice (Oryza sativa) endosperm

    Författare :Selcuk Aslan; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : World chemical and energy supplies for industry are today highly dependent on unsustainable fossil reserves. Vegetable lipids with similar chemical structures to fossil oil could be the ultimate renewable solution to replace fossil oil and provide environmentally friendly feedstocks and energy resources.
