How to maintain/increase agricultural productivity without causing soil degradation.
In turn, soil organic matter (black soil) is essential for a variety of needs like food, fibre and biomass production and the provision of essential ecosystem services such as water filtration. In agriculture, soil organic matter regulates plant nitrogen-use efficiency, stores and supplies other nutrients essential to plants and soil organisms, holds soil particles together, reduces soil erosion risk, improves the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water for healthy crop growth, and provides a porous medium for root growth. climate change carbon cycle carbon footprint
To address and analyze this issue, we use a combination of field measurements and analytical methods, including quantitative stable isotope techniques. climate change carbon cycle carbon footprint
Our research group is working on several projects to assess beneficial management practices that result in more productive soils and better yields without causing soil organic matter degradation. climate change carbon cycle carbon footprint
Soil carbon plays a key role in the carbon cycle, and thus it is important in global climate models climate change carbon footprint
