This Ebook provides a comprehensive analysis of several crop management systems that can improve crop production and quality while enhancing soil quality, using socially acceptable, economically viable, and environmentally friendly techniques that favour soil biodiversity (regarding both macro- and microorganisms). Each chapter will open and discuss a certain aspect of soil biodiversity.
The importance of soil biodiversity is something that is often overlooked in the design of cropping systems. We often forget that soil biodiversity and its functional groups are the drivers and carriers of agrotechnologies that support and perform processes in soil.
This Ebook is a deliverable of WP2: Identification of main challenges in European agricultural cropping systems and data mining of the SoildiverAgro project financed by the European Union´s Horizon2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº. 817819.
