Digging up soil science in Portugal
Soil science is essential for precision agriculture and for sustainable soil management. The EU-funded SOILdarity project will develop strategies to integrate soil ecology with cutting-edge soil and crop sensors, modelling and system-control-technologies for sustainable soil management. The project will focus on Portugal, where soil faces considerable challenges due to management and climate change, erosion and overexploitation. It will facilitate the cooperation between the leading partner FCiências.ID (including Ciências, the University of Lisbon’s Faculty of Science), and two leading research institutions: MIGAL- Galilee Research Institute (Israel) and UGENT University (Belgium). The leading partner aims at boosting the research and innovation capacity of Ciências, improving its know-how in precision agriculture and sustainable soil management through knowledge-transfer established with internationally leading research-intensive partners.
