Root litter chemistry and soil nutrient availability affect subsoil carbon turnover

Carbon (C) turnover in subsoil was studied by Zhi Liang, PhD student of the Deep Frontier project. The results presents a framework for enhanced subsoil C stock through a deep-rooted cropping system as related to root nitrogen (N) and lignin contents, soil N availability, and microbial activity.

Go in-depth with deep roots on 'The Day of the Roots', 4 June 2018 (in Danish)

What is going on in the deep soil layers? How do crops response to water stress? Do plants get water and nutrition from the deep soil layers? Do deep roots affect the soils’ microorganisms? How can we utilise plants with deep roots? Get answers to these questions when the Robusta project invites to 'The Day of the Roots' in Taastrup, Denmark.

Promising results about carbon turnover in deep soil

Preliminary results about carbon turnover in top- and subsoil were presented at a recent symposium. The poster, which was prepared by Zhi Liang, Ph.D.-student of the Deep Frontier project, won the prize for ‘Best poster’.

Live presentations of the project

Project partners have presented various aspects of the project for a curious audience. The presentations were in Danish and were made into videos. The videos can be viewed on ICROFS' website.
