An unused capacity to break down nutrients and hazardous pollutants in the uppermost layers

The soil capacity and to store and break down of nutrients varies across small scale areas. The different capacity and possible break down of nutrients can therefore be applied in the management of soils for agricultural purposes and in the work of managing contaminated land, like land fills. The aim is to improved yields and lower leaching of nutrients and pollutant.

The storage and break down capacity are investigated in the following pilots:UK-2, BE-1, BE-2, NL-2, GE-5 DK-1, DK-2, DK-3, DK-4
