Innovative Soil Management Practices across Europe

Innovative Soil Management Practices across Europe

i-SoMPE is a European project on Innovative Soil Management Practices across Europe and their ability for (i) enhancing ecosystem services, (ii) minimising soil threats and (iii) sustaining agriculture in a climate change context.

Innovative soil management practices (SMP) and agricultural systems are promoted to enhance ecosystem services in order to minimise soil threats and sustain agriculture in a climate change context. A comprehensive stocktake of SMPs and their ability to succeed on multiple goals, agricultural production, ecosystem services, biogeochemical cycles, is missing. By using a surveying approach, i-SoMPE will aim to documents innovative SMP. The data gathered will be synthesized considering technical and ecological constrains and socio-economic barriers. Context-specific thematic maps will be provided to guide farmers, researchers and policy makers to suitable SMP for climate-smart agriculture. i-Sompe is part the European Joint Programme Cofund on Agricultural Soil Management (EJP SOIL).

i-Sompe is part of EJP SOIL - Grant agreement No 862695

EJP SOIL is a European Joint Programme Cofund on Agricultural Soil Management contributing to key societal challenges including climate change, water and future food security.

The objectives are to develop knowledge, tools and an integrated research community to foster climate-smart sustainable agricultural soil management that:

  • Allows sustainable food production

  • Sustains soil biodiversity

  • Sustains soil functions that preserves ecosystem services
