iSQAPER – the project explained in a video message
Professor Coen Ritsema of the Wageningen University explains in a video the goals of the iSQAPER project. He stated that the iSQAPER project is focussing on trying to improve the quality of soils and in the same time maintain or increase crop productivity. Multiple problems exists related to soil quality. In Europe there are several soil threats ranging from water and wind erosion, soil degradation, desertification and soil compaction to flooding, landslides and salinization.
A lot of information on soil quality is available, but need to be made accessible for individual land users. The video will give more information on the goals and how this will be achieved by the iSQAPER project.
