Krebs, J. 2014. A pre-liminary survey on soil management practices and land units on soil organic carbon of small-scale communal farmers in northcentral Namibia. International Master's programme "Landscape Ecology and Nature Conservation"


Description:

A pre-liminary survey on soil management practices and land units on soil organic carbon of small-scale communal farmers in northcentral Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

Soil management practices play an influential role on soil organic carbon sequestration on micro- and at the landscape level. There is a need to promote soil organic sequestration on communal small-scale farms in North-Central Namibia, as this will not only result in improved soil quality which transfers to high crop yields and sustained food productivity but will also assist in mitigating climate change through the reduction of agricultural Greenhouse gas emissions in poor societies.
