Sustainable Soil Management
The mission of the team Sustainable Soil Management is to contribute to improved soil management practices and soil quality for the benefit of resource use efficiency and recycling in biomass production systems. In doing so we help to increase food, feed, and fibre production alongside improved water and air quality. We focus on the chemical, biological and hydrological characteristics of soils, and how those relate to the use and recycling of carbon, water, nutrients, metals, fertilisers, manures, and wastes.
