PROSTOCK Impact of organic waste amendments on carbon sequestration, greenhouse gases emission and nitrate lixiviation in peri-urban agricultural soils

Programme: GESSOL
Research period: 2011-2014
Key question / Key goal: The goal of PROSTOCK is to evaluate the spatial potentiality to improve the carbon stock in periurban places by the re-use of organic waste and to evaluate the potential impact into the greenhouse gases emission risk and the nitrous lixiviation
