Forage Production Research Group
Our researchers are based primarily in fields of plant physiology, microbiology, agrochemistry and molecular biology with main focus on plant breeding, phytopathology and toxicology in forage production. We interconnect multidisciplinary research with practice by collaborating with farmers, companies and other experts in the field. This multi-actor approach creates important values in agricultural sciences and brings new knowledge into the improvement of forage and feed quality.
Strategic Research Framework
Grant: Application Systems of Liquid Organic Fertilizers as the Means to Improve Soil Environment.
Grant: Development and optimization methods for the determination of biogenic amines in response to increasing health security of silage.
Grant: Innovation of practices for the establishment of mixed cultures of alfalfa to improve soil quality and produce of safe forage
SUPPORT OF AGRICULTURE IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
Our activities also include the export of knowledge outside the European Union. Our staff is involved in educational activities in Zambia, Nicaragua and Ghana. Educational activities are focused primarily on local farmers and students of selected universities. Research activities in these countries are focused on food chain safety (elimination of mycotoxins, biogenic amines, heavy metals, etc.)
