Stakeholder workshop in Murcia, Research, Dialogue & Action

On April 19th, a full-day event was held at La Junquera regenerative farm and village. During the event, the first results on soil biodiversity in the different cereal fields of the region were shared as part of the SOILGUARD project. Additionally, an open dialogue was held on the different agricultural practices – organic, regenerative, or conventional – and their interaction with soil biodiversity.

The event brought together a group of researchers, farmers, technicians, and the general public interested in soil health. The main objective was to share the progress of the SOILGUARD project in Murcia, which aims to develop tools for the sustainable management of soil biodiversity. By means of the results obtained, a series of soil biodiversity indicators will be created in order to know what implications it has on the ecosystem functions and how it affects the different soil management in different soil degradation conditions and in different scenarios.
