Wageningen University's Plant Life about an unknown root parasite and Veni grants

In the September issue of Plant Life, digital newsletter on plant research at Wageningen UR, you can read about how Rhamphicarpa fistulosa, an unknown root parasite, is increasingly affecting rice cultivation in Africa.

Furthermore, two talented scientists, Marjon de Vos and Bob Douma, received Veni grants. What research will they do with their grants?

Wageningen UR has research sites throughout the Netherlands. These complexes often derive special value from their geographical location, for instance in areas where many relevant firms are located, as well as from their special facilities.

At its Randwijk site, Wageningen UR carries out research in the fruit sector and tree nurseries.
