Event description
We will explore the widespread problem of soil structural loss and research on detection, monitoring and remediation of soil compaction

About this event

Soil compaction is one of the main physical threats to soil and largely results from the use of agricultural machinery, often in combination with wet soil. Halting soil degradation was put forward by the United Nations as one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 15). The phenomenon not only has negative consequences for rooting, nutrient uptake and consequently crop yield, but also compromises good water management. A compacted soil, after all, prevents the proper drainage of water in wet periods and makes it difficult for moisture to rise from deeper layers in dry conditions.

During this thematic day, we will explore ongoing research on prevention, detection, monitoring and remediation of soil structural loss and compaction and its underlying processes.

Keynote talk by Dr. Alejandro Romero-Ruiz / Methods for Field-Scale Characterization of Soil Structure

We look forward to receiving your abstract before October 31st, 17:00 if you want to participate with your research.
