Soil Health, Food and Fibre
This research stream explores the contribution of soils to the long-term stability of landforms and their role in capturing carbon and advancing agriculture.
It is concerned with providing soils as a contributor to long-term stable soil systems, quantifying the potential of soils as sinks for carbon, and advancing agriculture by improving soil health.
Research understanding the linkages between food production, re-use of agricultural waste and optimisation of soil systems functions in light of climate change challenges and is directed towards defining, planning and optimising sustainable production services for society.
