iSQAPER - good Agricultural Management Practices lead to better soil quality
In each of the iSQAPER study sites we have identified one or two agricultural management practices that have the best proven effectiveness on improving soil quality in that location. These practices are described in a new series of leaflets which explain i) the principles of the practice, ii) the soil threat it is designed to address and iii) the scientific evidence for its effectiveness.
See the Good practice leaflets (http://www.isqaper-is.eu/key-messages/good-practice-leaflets) page of the iSQAPERiS website for more information and follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/isqaperproject/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/iSQAPER) as we post the leaflets to celebrate World Soil Day 2020.
