CAOS - Climate Smart Agriculture on Organic Soils

Organic soils store a major share of the world's soil organic carbon and have widely been drained for agricultural cultivation, turning them into a strong source of greenhouse gases (GHG). How can Europe's drained organic soils be managed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance adapted agricultural use at the same time?

The CAOS project and the University of Uppsala host the

International Conference on Climate Smart Agriculture on Organic Soils
23-24 November 2017
Uppsala, Sweden

 

The meeting aims for the exchange of current research results both from natural and social sciences. We welcome oral presentations and posters on experimental and modelling studies at all scales targeting GHG emissions, water quality and biomass production. We encourage presentations on economic analyses of such systems and the design and evaluation of policy measures such as subsidy schemes.
Researchers, policy makers and practitioners are all invited to present and discuss current work.
