Advancing agricultural management and crop residue recycling
Sustainable agriculture systems are threatened by the long-term monoculture of annual crops and the excessive use of mineral fertilisers. Such practices increase greenhouse gas emissions. Diversification of agricultural systems and recycling of crop residues emerge as solutions for sustainable agroecosystems that meet the needs of food security and climate change mitigation and adaptation. In addition, the use of crop residues in the bioenergy sector is debated as a solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The EU-funded AgPro4CSA project will develop advanced agricultural management patterns that increase the recycling of crop residues and reduce the use of mineral fertilisers. It will provide a fundamental understanding of mechanisms affecting the nutrient cycling and greenhouse gas emissions in agricultural systems.
