Work package 4: Soil health and functional biodiversity

Work package 4 addresses the assessment of soil health and functional biodiversity as a function of agricultural practices implemented in regular and innovative cropping systems at all five experimental sites. A strict synergy with the activities carried out in work package 2 (Resilient cropping systems) and work package 3 (Nutrients availability and nitrate leaching) is required. It delivers background data to work package 5.3.


  • Task 4.1: Soil borne diseases and soil biodiversity assessment
  • Task 4.2: Pest management and soil arthropods/microbial biodiversity
  • Task 4.3: Weed biodiversity assessment
