How to address soil pollution by pesticides in African soils?
Pesticides are heavily used in agriculture to reduce crop losses due to pests, weeds and pathogens. Between 1961 and 2011 the global agricultural production more than tripled, largely due to pesticide use. Currently, global pestic ...

Assessing the role of cover crop biodiversity in improving soil structure and related ecosystem services in semiarid agro-ecosystems
The adoption of sustainable agricultural practices, in particular the implementation of cover crops can substantially reduce emissions and sequester some of the CO2 removed from the atmosphere by plants, contributing to climate ch ...

Scenarios of land degradation and restoration under climate change in Madagascar
Land degradation in different forms (deforestation, landslides, soil erosion) is a huge problem in Madagascar. WU-SLM has, in collaboration with partners, developed a prototype simulation platform to assess the consequences of alt ...

Effects of plastic debris and pesticides on soil microbial community
Problem context : Plastic mulches are widely used in South Spain for organic and conventional vegetables production to maintain soil moisture and prevent weeds in semi-arid areas. In this region three plastic types can be dis ...

TITLE: Microplastics as carriers of pesticides, from soil to earthworms approach.
Problem context Microplastics (particles less than 5mm) are emerging contaminants as they are persistent, can reach high densities and interact with abiotic and biotic environments. However, they have been studied almost exclusi ...

Effects of pesticides mixtures on earthworms biology and behavior
Problem context Around the world in conventional agriculture there is a strong application of pesticides, those pesticides affect the biology and behaviour of different soil invertebrates. Unfortunately, those pesticides are n ...

Modeling the effect of UV radiation on plant litter decomposition in semiarid agro-ecosystems
The objective of this topic is to assess the role of UV-photodegradation in the decomposition of plant residues of different quality and its implications for soil carbon and nutrient balances in agricultural systems under differen ...

Effects of pesticides in the soil microbial community Assessment of enzyme activity involved in the main nutrient cycles
Project description Microbial communities play important roles in soil because of the many functions they perform in nutrient cycling, plant symbioses, decomposition, and other ecosystem processes Soil enzymes have been sugge ...

Bioaccumulation of pesticides in earthworms under conventional, integrated and biological production scenarios Country: Portugal
Project description The increasing dependence on pesticides to enhance crop yields and food quality and the frequent presence of residues of these compounds in soil and water have become major environmental issues of concern. S ...
