RDE137: Managing the Quality of Organic Matter (OM) inputs to enhance Microbial Biomass and Activity

Project Details


This project aims to review the evidence for how organic matter quality relates to development of microbial biomass, microbial necromass and long-term SOC storage in soils. It will also explore practical opportunities to manage organic matter quality on farm, to deliver the greatest benefits through increasing microbial biomass and microbially-derived compounds. The results will identify and justify practical on-farm options that maximise benefits from soil microbes, suitable for higher level options in the SFI scheme.
