Short-term assignments to synthetize information for ranking plant pests

During 2018 there is an opportunity to participate in the exciting and important work performed at the Unit for Risk Assessment of Plant Pests. We are currently offering several short-term

SLU Risk assessment of plant pests

We perform independent analyses which will provide support to the Swedish Board of Agriculture in their effort to counter the damage of non-indigenous pests.


At SLU we work with the whole biogas chain. An unique feature for our research is that we answer questions about both energy generation and waste treatment. We have our own biogas plant as well as

Tree microbiomes

In this project, we study the ecological mechanisms contributing to the assembly of a tree’s microbiome. The project will reveal host traits correlated with pathogen susceptibility relevant for

Leaves as spore traps for improved forecasting methods

In this project we investigate if wheat leaves can be used to catch and analyse fungal spores. By increasing our knowledge on how diseases spread, we suggest better control strategies. Knowledge of

Development of plant diseases in future cropping systems with maize and winter wheat

Development of plant diseases in future cropping systems with maize and winter wheat

A changed climate and new cropping systems modifies the conditions for Swedish crop production. The spectrum and importance of different plant diseases might change, for example through increased

Effects of the preceding crop and reduced tillage on soil and root associated microbial communities

We are studying the effects of tillage and the preceding crop on soil microbial communities and plant disease in winter wheat. Field experiments are set up with six different preceding crops to

Assessments of potential toxin production of biological control agents are unnecessary harsh in the EU

The introduction of microbial control agents into the European market for practical use in pest and disease control is a very slow and costly process. This is partly due to unnecessarily strict
