Insects for proteins – what about soil fertility?
In a circular economy, diets will be increasingly less meat-based. One way to produce protein-rich products, is to grow insects on organic waste. But what does this mean for soil fertility? Is the manure produced by insects still  ...

From human waste to soil fertility
Current designs for a circularity in agricultural are underdeveloped in terms of their impact on soil fertility. At the same time, nutrients and organic matter from human excreta are under-used. The aim is to bring these two ends  ...

Long term fertilization effects on soil organic matter
Fertilization with organic amendments is a promising strategy to increase soil organic matter levels and promote essential soil functions such as carbon sequestration and water retention. Soil C exists in many forms in the soils a ...

The relations between soil health and food safety in cacao production systems of South America
Cacao production in South America is strongly promoted and linked to important environmental and rural development goals. Cacao is mostly produced by smallholder farmers. However, important challenges to enhance profitability incl ...

Getting to know soil functions and multifunctionality in Chinese agricultural soils: A modelling approach
With the extensive discussion of soil health, more attention has been paid to the contribution of soil to ecosystem services, that is, soil functions, including: primary productivity; water purification & regulation; climate regul ...

Settling the soil C saturation debate
Managing terrestrial ecosystems to increase the carbon contained in soils has been described as a potent way to mitigate climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Soil carbon is also key to supporting ecosyste ...

How do different soil organic matter fractions respond to warming?
Soil organic matter (SOM) stores large amounts of carbon. Under the influence of climate change, higher temperatures have the potential to stimulate SOM decomposition, accelerating the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere ...

To what extent do vermicompost production parameters affect subsequent carbon and nutrient cycling in soil?
Vermicompost, i.e., compost through the activity of earthworms, can be used as a soil amendment to improve soil fertility, carbon storage and plant growth. The characteristics of vermicompost can vary according to the used source  ...

Organic amendments to improve soil water retention
Climate change leads to more frequent drought and high intensity rainfall events. In recent years, arable production suffered from both, with droughts being particularly impactful on sandy soils. Innovations are needed to prevent  ...

Optimizing nutrient use efficiency of strip cropping systems: how does spatial diversity of plant and microbial properties influence soil nutrient cycling?
Strip cropping of multiple species has been proposed as a viable strategy to diversify intensive monocultural production systems through space and time, thereby supporting the transition towards a more sustainable and resilient ag ...
