Soil total organic carbon (TOC) is not sensitive enough to measure the short and medium term changes due to land use change practices, and thus meaningful fractions of soil organic carbon (SOC) should be measured. The objective of this study was to evaluate four agroforestry systems (AFSs) in order to test the hypothesis that agroforestry systems promote an increase in the soil organic carbon stocks and fractions, thus improving soil quality. For this, four 26 years old agroforestry systems… CONTINUE READING
