Abstract

Soil organic carbon (SOC) is crucial in maintaining soil functions and its productivity potential. Soils show a high sink potential for carbon sequestration, because SOC is responsive to modification through agricultural land use. On the Po Plain (northern Italy) the soils intensively managed declined their organic matter content over the past decades. Nevertheless, cropland soils could have a potential capacity to re-gain a large amount of C (Brenna et al., 2010). To support the dissemination of conservation practices in the North Italy, a Life+ project named “HelpSoil” (LIFE12 ENV/IT/000578) has started in 2013.
