Research with an environmental approach for the benefit of soils


Many researchers at FSAA study the preservation of soils and water retention in agro-systems, groundwater and surface contamination from agricultural activities, the physico-chemical and microbiological composition of soils, agro-environmental management of fertilizers and chemical inputs, and new alternative methods and their effects on agriculture and the environment in a context of sustainable development where agricultural soils are considered to be a non-renewable natural resource. Knowledge related to soil properties such as physics, environmental chemistry, fertility, microbiology and biochemistry, in combination with knowledge of mathematics and biology, allows researchers to study the hydrology and management of agricultural watersheds. In addition, researchers are able to carry out work on irrigation, drainage and evapotranspiration, runoff and erosion management, and agricultural mechanization.
