TUdi’s project partners from CSIC, IFAPA and BOKU will be holding a session during the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly, which takes place between 14–19 April 2024 in Vienna, Austria. The session called “Processes and strategies of soil restoration, conservation, and fertilisation” will focus on all aspects of soil conservation, restoration, and fertilisation strategies in agriculture at different spatial scales.
Any researchers interested in these topics are warmly invited to participate in the call for abstracts here. Contributions in the following areas are especially welcomed:
i) Methodology (field work, laboratory analyses, sensor development, statistical analyses, algorithms, and modelling; including citizen science) for assessing soil health and erosion, forming the basis to implement locally adapted soil protection and restoration strategies.
ii) Development of decision support tools, and soil restoration and fertilisation techniques and strategies, including synergies between digital agriculture and research for more sustainable agricultural systems and technological solutions to address stakeholders’ challenges.
iii) Case studies, including both monitoring and modelling, and recent advances coming from cooperative research comparing strategies to optimise soil and water use across different agricultural systems under different environmental conditions and scales.
iv) Socioeconomic studies on sustainable soil and water resource use, and approaches to implement soil and water conservation programs.
