Soil Organic Matter
New knowledge and practices that build soil resources provide the foundation of healthy farms, communities, and environments. The complex biological, geological, and chemical processes involved in soil organic matter formation and function require investigations by interdisciplinary and collaborative teams. NCERA-59‘s Research and extension activities related to these topics are coordinated in order to support environmentally-friendly, sustainable, productive, and profitable farming practices. They’ve brought together scientists from many disciplines to collaborate on research and outreach efforts that improve our understanding of organic matter formation, processes, function, and management; and through integrated research and outreach efforts have promoted understanding of soil organic matter formation – enhancing soil process, soil conservation, and crop management.
