Preserving Soil Fertility with the Swiss Soil Monitoring Network NABO

Soil fertility is a cornerstone of sustainable soil use. The aims of the Swiss Soil Monitoring Network NABO are the countrywide recording and assessment of soil stresses and pollutants, as well as the early recognition of undesirable changes in order to safeguard soil fertility. This long-term programme makes an important contribution to the monitoring of ecological sustainability, provides solutions for dealing with soil hazards, and helps with the assessment of soil functions.
