Assessment of promising agricultural management practices
A new article published has been published in "Science of The Total Environment" entitled: "Assessment of promising agricultural management practices". The article is about best Agriculture Management Practices (AMPs) and is part of the iSQAPER project. As stated in the abstract, the study focussed on specific aims:
1) map the current distribution of previously selected 18 promising AMPs in several pedo-climatic regions and farming systems located in ten and four study site areas (SSA) along Europe and China, respectively; and
2) identify the soil threats occurring in those areas. In each SSA, farmers using promising AMP's were identified and questionnaires were used to assess farmer's perception on soil threats significance in the area.
