SPP 1090 AG 4: Determination of the turnover rate and stabilization rate of organic substances using natural 13C-abundance (Project)

Quantitative knowledge about the assimilation rates of crop residues into different fractions of the soil organic matter (SOM) is an important prerequisite for an understanding of the regulation of the stabilization of organic substances in soils. The objective of the project is to study the turnover and stabilization rates of maize C in the soils of the maize monocultures (since 1961) of the...

SPP 1090 AG 4: Quantification and modeling of carbon turnover of arable soils as related to soil texture (Project)

Most models for the turnover of soil organic matter (SOM) include a number conceptual SOM pools. These pools represent fractions with a different degree of stabilization. One main process of SOM stabilization is the physical protection of both decomposable and recalcitrant substances. Therefore a new model concept is to develop for the whole carbon turnover of arable soils exceeding the hitherto...

Collaborative project: Objective evaluation of the quality of fresh and frozen meat using high-frequency technology - Subproject 4 (Project)

The aim of this project was to assess the quality of meat objectively and fast by using high frequency technology. The main topic was the determination of storage time of fresh and frozen meat, the proof whether meat is fresh or was frozen once or several times and the detection of added water or water binding additives respectively. The results of these investigations on beef, pork and poultry...

Collaborative project: Barrier System for Avian Influenza in Free-range Poultry Farming – Subproject 4 (Project)

The appearance of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) viruses in Europe presents an immense problem for poultry farms, particularly with free-range husbandry. No medical treatment is available, and wide-range culling is enforced by law. As a consequence, HPAI has profound economic impact on both conventional and organic poultry farming. In areas with high risk of HPAI infection, livestock...

Collaborative project: Further developments on small group systems ('Kleingruppenhaltung”) for laying hens – Subproject 4 (Project)

The aim of this scientific project was to advance and optimise small group housing systems for laying hens with respect to their effects on animal health, animal behaviour, hygiene, environmental emissions and economic aspects. For this purpose, small group housing systems were implemented at five different experimental farms and then subsequently modified in their equipment over three laying...

Collaborative project: Application of plasma technology for gentle preservation of perishables in the post-harvest chain – Subproject 4 (Project)

Production and processing of fresh fruits and vegetables require efficient, rapid and safe sanitization measures. The economic losses in perishable production due to deterioration are considerably high. Among the most frequent reasons are the microbial contamination affecting the products all through the processing chain, i.e. from field to retail. Also, contaminated products lead to consumer...

Collaborative project: FUGATO-plus - REMEDY - Reproductive and metabolic problems in the dairy cow; project P4 (Project)

Fertility problems are a growing problem and now a leading cause of severance cows dar. where the increasing milk yield in a negative correlation to fertility. There are several explanations approaches. The 'Declaration physiological approach assumes that high milk yield and the associated negative energy balance in the high lactation important endocrine functions and cellular / molecular...

Collaborative project: Insecticide-treated nets for controlling vector-borne diseases of veterinary relevance – Subproject 4 (Project)

Insects play an important role as vectors of various diseases, which have become increasingly relevant during recent years. These diseases not only have an important impact on health of man and livestock but also result in considerable economic losses in livestock industries. The infection with the virus of bluetongue (serotype VIII) serves as an example. Bluetongue was for the first time...

Collaborative project: Further development oft the steep slope harvester as a multifunctional system in plant protection and other applications – Subproject 4 (Project)

The main purpose of the project is the further development of the steep slope harvester to a carrier system for modern application devices for steep slopes. The steep slope harvester is then useful as an effective application system for plant protection that is able to spare expensive resources. With the use of application systems that decreases the losses, the steep slope harvester makes a...
