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.

Innovativ salixförädling för fossilfritt drivmedel
Ann Christin Rönnberg-Wästljung

Projektnummer: O-19-22-292 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2019

Energy and biomass

The conversion into a bio-based economy in Sweden requires a broad range of initiatives. One of the challenges is that additional sources of biomass will be needed. High yield potential, low conversion and production costs are critical success factors for new raw material. Salix is an energy crop …

Brukningsmetoder för ökad markkvalité och högre skördestabilitet under extremväder
Thomas Keller

Projektnummer: O-19-23-309 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2019

Crop production

Climate projections for Sweden indicate higher temperatures during summer and larger variability in precipitation between years. This poses enormous challenges for Swedish agriculture. The main aim of this project is to investigate relationships between soil management, soil quality and crop yield. …

Integrerad användning av genetisk resistens i Svensk matpotatisproduktion
Erik Andreasson, Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet

Projektnummer: R-19-25-282 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2019

Potato cultivars that are resistant to late blight and at the same time having acceptable other traits, have started to emerge. However, little of this material is used in Sweden and no organized and comparative table potato trials are done. Biological products against skin-finish diseases are …

Hästsparkas anslagsenergi - underlag för dimensionering av stallinredning och byggnadskonstruktioner
Hans Einar Joachim Fredrik von Wachenfelt, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet - SLU

Projektnummer: H-14-47-006 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2014

The aim is to get basic data for testing impact energy resistance of stable fittings and building elements. The goal is to quantify potential impact energy of horse kicks in order to elucidate the implication of “sufficient strength to resist horse kicks”, which is a demand for stable fitting …

Hösilage"intolerans" hos häst?
Cecilia Müller, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet

Projektnummer: H-15-47-063 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2015

The purpose is to examine haylage 'intolerance' in horses, which is expressed as diarrhoeic faeces in some horses when they are fed haylage (sometimes also when fed hay). A typical appearance is two-phase faeces - one solid and one liquid. It is not known why or how this condition appears, and it …
