Ecologically sustainable implementation of the Nature Diversity Act (Naturmangfoldloven) for restoration of disturbed landscapes in Norway

Bruk av fremmed frø til revegetering etter naturinngrep er en viktig trussel mot biodiversitet og miljø. Målet med helkjedeprosjekt ECONADA (Økologisk og økonomisk bærekraftig implementering av Naturmangfoldloven ved restaurering etter naturinngrep) var (a) å finne ut hvilke frøkilder som kan reg...

Evaporative demands and deficit irrigation on golf courses and other turfgrass areas

While lack of water is a major problem for turfgrass areas worldwide, Scandinavian golf courses have often been over-irrigated resulting in increased mowing costs, disease problems, nutrient and pesticide leaching, and reduced playing quality. By this pro posal, STERF wants to promote scientifica...

Skadeinsekter ved frøavl av rødkløver

Ved å innføre et selv-pålagt trekk i frøoppgjørene har Norsk frøavlerlag (NFL) dannet et eget forskingsfond. Søknaden tar utgangspunkt i dette fondet, samt egeninnsats fra frøavlere og firma i frøbransjen. Målet er å øke norske rødkløverfrøavlinger (Trifo lium pratense) gjennom bedre kunnskap om ...

MATPROG-Matprogrammet: Norsk mat fra sjø og land

Safe supply of climatically adapted forage seed through reduced storage losses

Winter damage, especially due to ice encasement, is an overriding factor governing the demand for forage seed in Norway. Global warming implies greater risks for ice damage because of winter rainfall and temperature fluctuations. Due to variations in seed yield and the highly unpredictable natur...

The potential of North American strains of Poa annua f. reptans for use on Norwegian golf course putting greens.

In Norway there are now 157 golf courses and 125.000 players. In order to serve this growing sport, the Norwegian Crop Research Institute in 2003 established a center for turfgrass research at Landvik, Grimstad, and I was appointed leader of the research team. Since then, several projects have be...

JORDBRUK-Jord, planter og husdyr

Increased seed production capacity in perennial grasses

Danish and Norwegian trials have indicated that seed yields of new, Norwegian grass cultivars (synthetics) tend to be lower than those of old Norwegian cultivars (seed-based populations) and foreign, more southerly adapted cultivars. The low seed yields c an limit farmers and turfkeepers access t...
