  • Soil organic matter (SOM) plays a dominant role in soil fertility and in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The way in which land is managed directly influences SOM. The objective of this work was twofold: (1) to evaluate the potential storage of C in a plinthic luvisol in southwest Burkina Faso under three different management methods—natural savannah vegetation, continuous cropping without manure and continuous cropping with manure; and (2) to examine the factors (chemical, physical… CONTINUE READING
