Crops for better soil
The EU LIFE+ project ‘Crops for better soil’ was initiated to show that with several agronomic measures, the (financial) yields and the soils of these fields could be improved. The project demonstrated this approach on a significant scale by applying these measures on over 100 fields. Within the project, Medusa developed a system for mapping the properties of soil. This system was used to map all soils of the fields twice. The case study describes the results in detail.
