Persistent soil compaction under arable fields and grasslands
Compaction of agricultural soils is not only increasing but is also a complex problem. ILVO and partners are going to investigate in the next 4 years how soil compaction can be remedied sustainably and which measures are economically and also practically feasible.
The other makes erosion, compaction, cross-contamination and eutrophication more likely. The question is at what in-between time points that fertilization can be applied with the lowest possible harmful impact on the environment and climate.
