While current agricultural cropping systems have a limited exploitation of water and nutrients from below 1m soil depth, some plant species can grow much deeper root systems. This allows the exploitation of unused nutrients and water from deep soil layers which again increases the sustainabillity of cropping systems.

The kick-off meeting at Villum Deep Frontier marks the beginning of a development of such systems as well as the study of the resources use, biological effects and carbon sequestration in soil layers down to 5m depth.

The meeting takes place at Højbakkegård February 2. Further information folows at this website.
