Collaborative project: Investigation of animal welfare-environment-interaction of dairy cows - subproject 3 (Project)

In the context of the current discussion surface areas (barn floors) within dairy freestall barns, as well as research topics on factors of animal welfare, this research task provides a common intersection. The surface areas polluted by excrements of the animals are mainly responsible for emissions of ammonia out of the barn. Furthermore, the surface area of the barn functions as a running...

Field study on vaccination against boar taint - Scientific monitoring of the 100,000 boar project to evaluate immunocastration as an alternative to non-anaesthetic piglet castration (Project)

The phasing out of non-anaesthetic piglet castration must be implemented by the end of 2020. Alternatives include boar fattening and vaccination with Improvac® and surgical castration under general anaesthesia. In Germany, there is limited practical experience with vaccination at all stages of the supply chain. A network of agricultural organisations has launched an initiative to produce 100,000...

Reduction of storage losses due to an acoustic early detection system for insect pests in grain (Project)

Insect pests in grain storages can cause severe financial losses. Infested grain needs to be treated and can only be sold with lower profit. Intense infestation can lead to contamination with mycotoxins and total loss of stock. The "beetle sound tube"-system is an innovative method to identify insect infestation at an early stage using acoustics. Compared to other methods such as traps,...

Early acoustic detection of grain storage insect pests (Project)

Insect pests in grain storages can cause severe financial losses. The “Beetle Sound Tube”-System is planned as an acoustic early detection system permanently installed in grain silos that provides information about insect infestation much earlier than conventional monitoring methods. The farmer/storekeeper gets readily prepared information about insect species, an indication about the level of...

Analysis of temperature effects on the susceptibility of oilseed rape cultivars and genotypes to TuYV and pests (aphids) (Project)

Due to climate change and the lack of insecticide dressing of seeds, the cultivation of oilseed rape is endangered by infection with TuYV. Agriculture is furthermore enforced to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. With regard to economic and ecological aspects the oilseed rape varieties with TuYV resistance are crucial. The objective of this study is to characterise the currently used ‘R54’...

Development of innovative analytical methods for the detection of whey proteins and establishment of biomarkers as quality parameters of whey protein-enriched semi-hard cheese (Project)

The aim of the project is the development of innovative methods for the determination of whey protein in whey protein-enriched and fat-reduced cheeses and for the evaluation the quality of these new cheeses also by applying new developed biomarkers. In this project, new methods based on HPLC and HPTLC methods are being developed in order to determine peptides and proteins directly or after...

Development of innovative analytical technologies as a prerequisite for the production of safe and high-quality crustacean products and a sustainable stock management - subproject 1 (Project)

This project aims towards establishing innovative species authentication methods for crustaceans in order i) to facilitate incoming goods inspection in plants, ii) to improve the control of labelling compliance by authorities and iii) to ensure consumer protection as well as iv) to enable a better conservation of resources. At first, the project follows the strategy to complete data of...
