FiBL project

Title Dynamics of carbon sequestration and stabilisation in a long-term agricultural trial
Title Original Dynamics of carbon sequestration and stabilisation in an agricultural long-term trial
Official Acronym DynaCarb
FiBL project number 10125
Abstract

Soil and soil organic matter (SOM) are the most important terrestrial sinks for atmospheric CO2. Smart agricultural practices are discussed as effective options to mitigate climate change by increasing the amount of SOM and thereby removing CO2 from the atmosphere. However, several questions remain unclear in the context of carbon sequestration and stabilization in soils. Therefore, it is important to understand how SOM in agricultural systems is processed, how fast it ends up in different functional pools and how long and how much can be sequestered in which pool. Our project will shed light on the sequestration, stabilization and dynamic perspective of SOM in an agriculturally managed long-term trial in Switzerland (DOK trial).
