PROSTOCK – Effects of applying exogenous organic matter onto soil on soil carbon storage, greenhouse gases emissions and nitrate leaching in peri-urban agricultural soils

Programme: GESSOL
Research period: 2009-2013
Key question / Key goal: The goal of PROSTOCK is to evaluate the spatial potentiality to improve carbon stocks in peri-urban soils thanks to organic waste and to evaluate its impacts in terms of greenhouse gases emission and nitrate leachage
