Webinar 2: Why we need healthy soils?

Wednesday, 9th September

Soils are essential for life on earth, providing food, clean water and habitats for biodiversity, contributing to climate resilience and supporting our cultural heritage and landscapes. However, they are threatened by human activities including unsustainable management practices and contamination from industries. Teagasc is currently researching and investigating the physical, chemical and biological properties of Irish soils to gain a better understanding of their interactions and overall health.

Listen back to Teagasc researchers on this webinar to find out more about our research, the health of Irish soils and what we need to do to make them healthier.

Webinar 3: How Soil Organic Carbon Cycling works in Irish Soils?

Wednesday, 23rd September

Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) is a major component of soil organic matter.  Increasing the concentration of soil organic carbon increases the absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere and leads to an improvement in soil health.  Understanding how this works is a key research and innovation theme at Teagasc.

Listen back to Teagasc researchers on this webinar to find out more about our research and gain a better understanding of organic carbon cycling in Irish soils and its contribution to mitigating climate change.
