1SmartSOIL (Sustainable farm Management Aimed at Reducing Threats to SOILs under climate change) is a research project in the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme. It aims to contribute to reversing the current degradation trend of European agricultural soils by improving soil carbon management in European arable and mixed farming systems covering intensive to low-input and organic farming systems. SmartSOIL is identifying and developing options to increase C stocks and optimise C use (flows) whilst maintaining sustainable Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stocks.
