We are beginning Phase 2 of the On-Farm SOC (soil organic carbon) Project through the Channel Payments for Ecosystem Services (CPES) project this year.

You can read all about our Phase 1 work on the Land Management page.

Both phases are overseen by Prof. Jennifer Dungait. She will be giving a talk on The importance of soil organic matter for soil quality at the British Grassland Society’s Winter meeting on 19 March 2019, which will include details of CPES, the Tamar Valley study and our role as a key stakeholder / funder.

CPES aims to develop alternative markets and mechanisms to support PES, with particular regard for water quality including reducing the occurrence of algal blooms which result from nutrient enrichment in water bodies.
