SQAPP the soil quality assessment app
Setting a new standard in soil quality assessment - iSQAPER has built an app for mobile devices to use anywhere in the world, providing location-specific soil quality information and sustainable land use management options.
A multi-actor approach underpins the development of SQAPP - the app has been developed, tested, evaluated and improved by farmers, scientists, practitioners, agricultural service providers and policy makers.
Note: There is currently Restricted access to some of these sections. This is to allow the authors time to publish their results.
The specifications of the SQAPP design and functionality at different levels of complexity for the first release, pilot version of SQAPP. [D4.1/M6.2]
SQAPP beta version was formally evaluated by some 90 European stakeholders (researchers, farmers, students, advisory services and policy makers) in locations in Slovenia, Poland, Portugal, Greece, Spain, France, Estonia, Romania and Netherlands. The evaluation used a standardized interview protocol and questionnaire to collect feedback from the stakeholders on the quality and accuracy of information provided by SQAPP and the benefits and disadvantages of its different features.

During its development SQAPP has been demonstrated to and discussed by many different groups of farmers, advisors, policy makers and researchers and students. The feedback they have given have helped shape and organise the app. Here we provide answers to some of the questions that people most commonly ask about SQAPP that cannot be provided on the app itself.
