Areg Poghosyan, Henning von Alten, Microbial improvement of compost and biochar products by combination with arbuscular and ericoid mycorrhizal fungi 

The EU funded project REFERTIL has the mission to contribute to the transformation of urban organic waste, food industrial by-products and farm organic residues from a costly disposal process into an income generating activity. The improved output products will be safe, economical and standardized compost and biochar products (biochar originates from different types of carboniferous plant and/or animal waste biomass, It is produced under low temperature carbonization conditions at an average 500°C in the absence of air) containing phosphorous and nitrogen that can be economically and beneficially used by farmers. Within this framework the Leibniz University of Hannover has the objective to combine these biochar and compost products with inocula of arbuscular and ericoid mycorrhizal fungi. The joined application of mycorrhizal fungi together with biochar or compost shall combine the positive effects on plant nutrition and soil properties the latter have with the known effects of mycorrhizal fungi to improve plant tolerance against abiotic and biotic stress.A number of isolates of arbuscular and ericoid mycorrhizal fungi are tested in combination with biochar and compost in tagetes and rhododendron pants regarding mycorrhizal colonization and functioning

Green Carbon Conference, 1-3 April 2014, Brussels

The Conference theme of Green Carbon aimed to clarify and highlight the often invisible yet vital link between Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) and soil health, and the role this link plays in the sustainability of agricultural production and the flow of ecosystem services. Topics to be addressed:  the importance of SOC for the overall soil quality and health, sustainability and landscape issues, intimately related to the role of soil carbon such as ecosystem functions and services, climate change mitigation and carbon offset, and socio-economic and policy aspects.
