BONARES 2023 Conference

Berlin, Germany

Soil as sustainable resource

The BONARES 2023 conference will bring together researchers from various disciplines related to soil and plant sciences and agronomy to discuss strategies towards a (multi)functionality of soil ecosystems taking also constraints of climate and global change into account. The conference aims at providing solutions for a sustainable soil management including climate change adaptation, which requires an understanding of soils at a systemic level and to assess their value in a socio-economic framework.

The conference will focus on eight specific topics this edition:

  1. Impact of agriculture and cropping systems on soil functions
  2. Carbon and nutrient cycling in soils: Processes and interactions in a changing world
  3. Soil biomes and multifunctionality of soils
  4. Soil degradation and sustainable soil management in agricultural landscapes
  5. Model-based prediction of the dynamics of soil functions
  6. Using soil sensing technologies for soil mapping, modelling and decision making in agriculture
  7. Soils as a key to climate change mitigation: private and public governance instruments to unlock the potential
  8. Data challenges and solutions
