Interactions between Soil Structure and Soil Use

The ‘Soil Structure’ project deals with 4 aspects: (1) improved understanding of mechanical soil load-/deformation processes, as well as additional data on mechanical soil properties; (2) a fundamental understanding of anthropogenic and natural structural formation processes; (3) quantifying the structural quality of soils using direct and indirect indicators; (4) the pedological-agronomic evaluation of tillage experience and site-related soil assessment. The aim is to preserve or improve soil quality and function both for present and future generations.
