This Pillar will oversee the development of a Decision Support Tool (DST) for farmers and advisors, which we will name the Soil Navigator (analogous to the ‘Carbon Navigator’ by Murphy et al., 2013). This Soil Navigator will provide a menu of user-friendly soil management strategies, ranked by cost-effectiveness, to manage the soil functions on individual farms (local scale). This menu will be stratified by pedo-climatic zone and farming system.
Farmers and extension services participating in LANDMARK will be actively involved in developing and testing these tools. Pillar 1 will be co-ordinated by Prof Christian Bugge Henriksen (University of Copenhagen).
