Soil organic carbon dynamics, conservation agriculture

Why You Care?

Conservation agriculture constitutes the best tool to create sustainable agriculture by enhancing crop
productivity and soil quality and sequestering soil organic carbon. Intensive tillage practices on cropland
have been implemented for decades in Cambodia and often caused increased soil organic carbon depletion posing a serious
threat to sustained agricultural productivity and food security in the country.Thus, development and improvement of crop ration schemes under conservation agriculture in conjunction with a high input of crop residues in this research is crucial to restore soil resilience and to increase SOC sequestration which is the principle indicator of soil fertility, productivity and sustainability. The findings will provide a unique opportunity to introduce and spread these improved agricultural management practices countrywide to improve food security.

What sustainability means to you?

Sustainability is an ability or capacity of something to sustain or support itself without or less outside involvement over a period of time, and to minimize the negative impacts on earth.

Why do you think it’s important for Aggies to be sustainable?
