Interested scientists as well as stakeholders in the field of soil management are invited to join the BONARES 2023 Conference Berlin – “Soil as a sustainable resource”. The conference will bring together researchers from various disciplines related to soil and plant sciences and agronomy to discuss strategies towards a (multi)functionality of soil ecosystems taking also constraints of climate and global change into account. The conference aims at providing solutions for a sustainable soil management including climate change adaptation, which requires an understanding of soils at a systemic level and to assess their value in a socio-economic framework.

About the BonaRes funding project:
The ATB coordinates 1 of 10 interdisciplinary collaborative projects within the BonaRes funded research work that aims to secure productivity and efficiency of soil as a resource in the long run and – if possible to enhance them. The I4S (Intelligence for Soil) – Integrated System for Site-Specific Soil Fertility Management project is a joint research project which develops solutions for maintaining and improving soil fertility within the framework of precision agriculture.
