Crops for better soil mentioned in a LIFE publication

Our project was mentioned in the latest publication from the European Commission, report which collected information on all the projects dedicated to the fight against climate change since 1999.

“An analysis of the LIFE project database indicates that there have been 242 projects that have produced positive climate change mitigation results. The 242 LIFE climate change mitigation projects represent a combined budget of €609 million, of which the European Commission has contributed some €261 million. The energy sector has the largest proportion of projects (120 in total, or 49%), followed by agriculture and forestry (19%) and transport (14%).”

The Crops for better soil fits into the agriculture and forestry framework and receives a special mention by the Commission for its focus on advancing techniques for organic and precision agriculture in different soil circumstances. They show their support for our and other similar projects’ work on reducing soil emissions for a variety of crops and the effects on soil of reducing tillage.
