SOIL data

Supporting harmonised agricultural soil information and reporting

The objective is the development of an agreed knowledge base and database to improve:

  • the European contribution towards international reporting on soils
  • the accuracy of European agricultural policies

Research projects will be conducted to:

  • develop a prototype distributed system to integrate agricultural soil information across Europe and streamline the data flow to ESDAC
  • provide thematic databases and maps of agricultural soil indicators, properties, and maps of agricultural soil properties and management systems
  • set target values of agricultural SOC, agricultural soil degradation and fertility
  • develop methods to account, monitor and map agricultural soil carbon, fertility and degradation

All activities, progress and achievements will be announced and addressed here with further information and link.
