EJP SOIL is a European Joint Programme Cofund on Agricultural Soil Management contributing to key societal challenges including climate change and future food supply.
EJP SOIL targets climate change adaptation and mitigation, sustainable agricultural production, ecosystem services and restoration and prevention of land and soil degradation.
Aim – to identify the mechanisms underpinning trade-offs and synergies of soil arbon sequestration, greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient losses in agricultural soils across Europe, and propose climate-zone specific indicators and measures to mitigate trade-offs.

Aim – by using a surveying approach, i-SoMPE will aim to documents innovative farming practice.

Aim – to overcome the limitations of static soil maps by putting the use of satellite time series forward, test their potential to predict cropland soil organic carbon content over various pedoclimatic conditions and cropping systems across Europe.

Aim – proposing and testing a new method to downscaling large-extent soil maps to higher resolutions using proximal sensors, drones and satellite images.

Aim – to estimate the feasible SOC-sequestration potential taking into account technical and socio-economic constraints, to align with the current FAO activity for a global SOC-sequestration potential map.
