The members of the Farm Technology Group see it as their mission "To enhance, exploit and desseminate the potential of technology in primary Agricultural production processes to fulfil the needs of mankind and nature in a sustainable way".
Measuring Airborne Microorganisms and Dust from Livestock Houses
Airborne transmission has been suspected to be responsible for epidemics of highly infectious disease in livestock production. In such transmission, the pathogenic microorganisms may associate with dust particles.
Science yields impact when results are actually implemented and used in agricultural practice. Therefore the Farm Technology Group seeks support and collaboration with commercial companies and other research partners.
