FRANCE: Environment Ministry funds research into sustainable soil management
France's ongoing research into sustainable soil management programme is seeking research proposals.
Funding proposals relating to the use of indicators, soil conservation techniques, the impact of cultural practices on soil quality and/or soil’s carbon sequestration capacity will be given priority in the 2000 funding round.
In 1999, nine projects into soil research were awarded funding, totalling 4.6 million French francs.
Proposals are due by 10 March 2000.
