Is there a need to apply organic fertilizers to agricultural soils?
: Soil organic matter is highly relevant to multiple soil processes and functions. How much needs to be applied from which quality to supply specific functions, however, is not clear. A long term field experiment with plots that h ...

Moisture and temperature effects on peat soil respiration
Peat soils play an important role in the global carbon cycle, through their ability to sequester a large stock of carbon. In the Netherlands, about 60% of peat soils are used as grasslands. Intensive drainage of these peat meadows ...

Climate resilience in agroforestry systems.
Agroforestry is increasingly recognised as a potential mitigation and adaptation strategy against climate change. Agroforestry is often argued to increase soil carbon, improve nutrient cycling and promote soil biodiversity. Howeve ...

Biological soil quality as affected by novel fertilizers input in diverse grassland systems
One of the key challenges for agricultural systems is to use fertilizers more efficiently, which includes recycling waste into novel fertilizers and increasing the circularity of nitrogen use in the plant-soil system. When investi ...

Can earthworms increase carbon sequestration through silicate weathering?
Enhanced Silicate Weathering (ESW) has emerged as a Negative Emission Technology (NET) due to its vast potential to increase long-term carbon sequestration. The weathering of silicates allows to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from t ...

Effects of solar parks on soil biodiversity and functioning
Introduction: Solar parks are a relatively new and rapidly expanding land use to produce renewable energy and meet CO2 reduction targets. However, their impact on soil quality raises concern. Solar parks cause shading and change t ...

Root trait diversity in grassland communities enhance productivity and ecosystem services
Multispecies swards consisting of different grasses, forbs and legumes are a promising alternative to high yielding and high input perennial ryegrass monoculture used in pasture production. Recent research shows that low input bio ...

Decay rate of plant material exposed to a gradient of diverse plant communities – a tea bag decomposition experiment
Multispecies swards consisting of different grasses, forbs and legumes are a promising alternative to high yielding and high input perennial ryegrass monoculture used in pasture production. Recent research shows that low input bio ...

That sounds like Frass! Does strip cropping interact with addition of flytilizer (insect based fertilizer) to enhance soil community diversity and increase nitrogen mineralization?
Strip cropping 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 agricultural sector. Fl ...
