We completed sampling of 100 soil sampling points across Nova Scotia for the Soil Organic Matter and Soil Carbon Survey in Agro-Ecosystems of Atlantic Canada in cooperation with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
The goal of this project is to assess soil organic matter characteristics and soil functions and their relationship with land-use and management practices across the Atlantic region to develop a regional soil carbon map.
