Is it possible to foster soil fertility and slow down climate change? The SOMMIT project aims at understanding soil management to do just this

Agricultural practices can determine the role of soils as a source or sink of greenhouse gases and thus critically influence the capacity of soils for climate regulation. The SOMMIT project will advance our understanding on this matter and help to predict how soils response to different soil management options aimed to increase soil carbon storage.
