• Fusarium and mycotoxin content of harvested grain was not related to tillage intensity in Norwegian spring wheat fields 

      Hofgaard, Ingerd Skow; Aamot, Heidi Udnes; Seehusen, Till; Riley, Hugh; Dill-Macky, Ruth; Holen, Børge; Brodal, Guro (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-11-09)
      To mitigate the risk of erosion and nutrient runoff, reduced tillage has become more prevalent in Norway. Within within recent decades, there have been some years with relatively high occurrence of Fusarium head blight and ...
    • HT-2 and T-2 toxins in Norwegian oat grains related to weather conditions at different growth stages 

      Hjelkrem, Anne-Grete Roer; Aamot, Heidi Udnes; Brodal, Guro; Strand, Einar; Torp, Torfinn; Edwards, Simon G.; Dill-Macky, Ruth; Hofgaard, Ingerd Skow (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-08)
      High concentrations of the mycotoxins HT-2 and T-2 (HT2 + T2), primarily produced by Fusarium langsethiae, have occasionally been detected in Norwegian oat grains. In this study, we identified weather variables influencing ...
    • Microdochium majus and other fungal pathogens associated with reduced gluten quality in wheat grain 

      Aamot, Heidi Udnes; Lysøe, Erik; Koga, Shiori; Nielsen, Katherine Ann Gredvig; Böcker, Ulrike; Brodal, Guro; Dill-Macky, Ruth; Uhlen, Anne Kjersti; Hofgaard, Ingerd Skow (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-06-02)
      The bread-making quality of wheat depends on the viscoelastic properties of the dough in which gluten proteins play an important role. The quality of gluten proteins is influenced by the genetics of the different wheat ...
    • Removal of Small Kernels Reduces the Content of Fusarium Mycotoxins in Oat Grain 

      Brodal, Guro; Aamot, Heidi Udnes; Almvik, Marit; Hofgaard, Ingerd Skow (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-05-23)
      Cereal grain contaminated by Fusarium mycotoxins is undesirable in food and feed because of the harmful health effects of the mycotoxins in humans and animals. Reduction of mycotoxin content in grain by cleaning and size ...
    • Weather Patterns Associated with DON Levels in Norwegian Spring Oat Grain: A Functional Data Approach 

      Hjelkrem, Anne-Grete Roer; Aamot, Heidi Udnes; Lillemo, Morten; Sørensen, Espen Sannes; Brodal, Guro; Russenes, Aina Lundon; Edwards, Simon G.; Hofgaard, Ingerd Skow (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-12-27)
      Fusarium graminearum is regarded as the main deoxynivalenol (DON) producer in Norwegian oats, and high levels of DON are occasionally recorded in oat grains. Weather conditions in the period around flowering are reported ...
