    Linket til højre henviser til rapporten i trykt format til download.This report provides an overview on new technologies for integrate sustainable and resilient management practices in arable ecosystems for advanced farmers, consultants, NGOs and policy makers. By following sustainable soil management strategies, which consider the site- and field-specific parameters and agricultural machinery’s improvements, it is possible to maximize production and income, while reducing negative environmental impacts and human health issues induced by agricultural activities as well as improving food and soil quality in short- and long-terms. This report also illustrates the importance to combine a system approach for plant production by assessing field readiness, managing in-field traffic management, implementing the sitespecific controlled as well as sensor-controlled seedbed preparation, seeding, and weeding. Hence, allowing to estimate future field and crop parameters based on various sensors measurements of previous and current field and crop parameters, which is a required data input in order to optimize agricultural machinery’s performance.

    The general goal of this thesis was to provide information useful for the breeding programme of the Royal Dutch Warmblood Studbook (KWPN) in relation with the ongoing specialisation of the population. Data provided by KWPN consisted of records from studbook-first inspection, competition performance on dressage and show-jumping, and pedigree information. Firstly, the effect of specialisation was studied on the connectedness between the subpopulations of dressage and show-jumping horses, using the pedigree information. Results indicated that relatedness between horses in the two subpopulations has been reduced to a low level, while relatedness within both subpopulations has been increasing consistently. A reduction in the number of influential ancestors in both subpopulations was observed. Secondly, it was analysed whether the specialisation for either dressage or show jumping has affected genetic parameters of traits recorded in the two subpopulations. Traits recorded at studbook-entry inspection were defined as a dressage trait or a show-jumping trait according to the type of horse that received the inspection. Bivariate analyses were performed to estimate the genetic correlation between the two traits. Results indicated that the specialisation process has resulted in a difference in mean trait values between dressage and show-jumping horses. However, differences in heritabilities for traits defined as dressage or show-jumping did not differ significantly, and the genetic correlations between them were not different from one considering their posterior standard deviation. Thirdly, the model to analyse performance in competition of dressage and show-jumping was studied. Results showed that performance in competition for dressage and show-jumping is a heritable trait (h2 ~ 0.11-0.13), and that it is important to account for the effect of rider in the genetic analysis. Fourthly, it was estimated the genetic correlation between the performance of horses in dressage and show-jumping competition, and the genetic correlations between traits measured early in life and performance in competition in each of the disciplines. Results showed that the genetic correlation between performance of horses in dressage and show-jumping was slightly unfavourable (-0.12). The genetic correlation between dressage and show-jumping tended to become more unfavourable over time, but this trend was not reflected in changes in the correlations between competition traits and traits recorded in the studbook-entry inspection. From this study it can be concluded that no extra benefit is to be expected from definition of a combined breeding goal. However, entirely separated breeding programmes for both disciplines are therefore not advisable. Constructing separate selection indexes would allow for optimal weighting of information sources such as studbook-entry inspection traits in accordance to the breeding goal of each sports discipline.

    Et voksende antal mennesker i Danmark oplever at være overfølsomme over for dufte og kemikalier. Imidlertid er den tilskrevne diagnose Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) ikke medicinsk anerkendt i Danmark pga. mangel på organiske og patofysiologisk basis for symptomerne. Dette speciale bygger på et kvalitativt studie af 20 MCS-ramte i Danmark. Specialet undersøger, hvordan oplevelsen af at lide af MCS bliver meningsfyldt og sammenhængende for de lidende med fokus på interaktionen mellem kropslige oplevelser, kulturelle kategorier og sociale strukturer. Undersøgelsen tager udgangspunkt i tre analytiske tilgange til kroppen; henholdsvis den individuelle, den sociale og den politiske krop. Specialets overordnede argument er, at disse tre "kroppe" alle opleves på en og samme tid i den levede krop hos de MCS-ramte. Med afsæt i antropologisk teori om følelser, som forsøger at kombinere den sociale og den materielle krop, konkluders det, at en forståelse af, hvordan oplevelsen af MCS bliver meningsfuld må findes i interaktionen mellem kropslige processer og den sociokulturelle kontekst som sygdommen opleves i. A significant number of people in Denmark claim to be hypersensitive towards perfumes and chemicals. However, the ascribed diagnosis Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) remains medically contested due to lack of organic and pathophysiological basis for the symptoms. This thesis reports on a qualitative study of 20 MCS sufferers in Denmark. The thesis explores how the experience of MCS becomes meaningful and coherent for the sufferers, focusing on the interaction between bodily experience, cultural categories and social structures. I approach the study by examining three perspectives from which the body can be expored: the individual body, the social body and the body politic. I argue that these three "bodies" are all simultaneously experienced in the lived body of the MCS sufferers. Drawing on an anthropological theory of emotions that combine the social and the material body, I conclude that the understanding of how the MCS experience becomes meaningful is found in the interaction between bodily processes and the sociocultural context in which illness is experienced.
