CAOS - Climate Smart Agriculture on Organic Soils

Project

Impounded drainage channel (© Ulrich Mäck)

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?
