Soil management can be seen as an integral part of land management and focuses on the different soil types and characteristics that can enhance the soil quality for the aimed land-use. To ensure food security, soil management is important since it can potentially improve agricultural production, combat climate change and contribute to green economic growth. Improving nutrient recycling, increasing organic matter content and applying fertilizers at the right time and in the right amount can ensure nutrients are used more efficiently and soils are healthier. In this Knowledge Portal topic, knowledge is presented that focuses on interventions that can increase the productive capacity of soils.
The Food & Business Knowledge Platform is also actively involved in this theme. lease have a look at the theme page on soil management for the latest news, events, and our own publications.
