Grass for grazing or forage production contains variable amounts of carbohydrates, which often are described as the good (fiber), the bad (sugar) and the ugly (fructans) in relation to prevention, and development of diseases like insulin resistance and laminitis. There is a large variation in carbohydrate content in grass, and especially the content and digestion of sugar and fructans in grass is debated among horse owners. Furthermore, the fiber content and digestibility largely determines the energy content in grass and forage for horses, and is therefore of interest for both high- and low-performing horses. The aim of this project is to investigate the content of the different carbohydrate fractions in different grass species and to study their digestion in the equine gastrointestinal tract. This project will contribute with important knowledge regarding selection of grass species and harvesting or grazing regimes for different types of horses.

Gress til beite eller grovfôrproduksjon inneholder varierende mengder av karbohydrater, som ofte beskrives som de gode (fiber), de onde (sukker) og de grusomme (fruktaner) i forhold til forebyggelse og utvikling av sykdommer som insulinresistens og forfangenhet. Karbohydratinnholdet i gress varierer mye og spesielt er innholdet og fordøyelsen av sukker og fruktaner i gress mye diskutert blant hesteeiere. I tillegg har innholdet og fordøyeligheten til fiberen stor effekt på energiinnholdet i gress og grovfôr til hester, og er derfor av stor betydning for både høyt- og lavtytende hester. Formålet med dette prosjektet er å undersøke innholdet av forskjellige karbohydratfraksjoner i forskjellige gressarter og undersøke deres fordøyelse i hestens fordøyelseskanal. Dette prosjektet vil bidra med viktig kunnskap om valg av gressarter og høstings- eller beiteregimer for ulike hestetyper.

Fruit tree canker, caused by the fungus Neonectria ditissima, has become a threat for Swedish apple production. No efficient protective measures are available and no complete genetic resistance is known in apple. However, apple genotypes differ in the level of partial resistance which must be fully …

It is well known that storage of animal manure and digestate causes emissions of methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and ammonia (NH3). A crust on liquid manure acts both as a physical barrier for NH3 and as a biofilter that oxidize CH4 and NH3. However, N2O can be formed in some crusts, and there …

Crop production

Oilseed rape (OSR) is a profitable and important crop in Swedish agriculture, especially winter OSR which is cultivated on approximately 100000 ha each year. Cultivation of OSR relies on large inputs of fertilizers and pesticides, which has economic costs as well as negative environmental impacts. …
