Pan-European Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stock of agricultural soils (data available)

2013.12.09 | Research news

The future EU policy in agriculture will utilized SOC as indicator, both as a main parameter of soil quality and as a strategy to offset CO2 emission by C sequestration. However a consistent picture of agricultural SOC stock is missing as well as tools to orient the future policymaker decisions. We estimated a current top SOC stock of 17.63 Gt in…
