Soil quality indicators are soil parameters which are sensitive to soil management and related to soil functions. Novel techniques for measuring certain soil parameters, especially in the fields of biochemistry and biology, represent a unique opportunity to better understand the effects of soil management on soil functions. A number of novel soil quality indicators have been researched and developed in iSQAPER.
»Labile carbon fractions as soil quality indicators
»Soil suppressiveness to Pythium ultimum and its relation with soil parameters
»Effect of tillage and organic matter additions on nematodes community assessed with 18S squencing
»Community level physiological profiling with MicroResp®
