Protecting agricultural soils from contamination

How to prevent agricultural soil contamination and how to address the problem of contaminated soils?


The Focus Group is ongoing.


Tasks:

  • Identify the main soil pollutants in different regions and challenges each of them poses.
  • Review existing knowledge about ways to measure soil contamination and share information.
  • Identify innovative methods to prevent soil contamination in particular through improved management on farm.
  • Identify a set of good practices to prevent agricultural soil contamination from various sources and to remedy agricultural soil contamination.
  • Identify remaining research needs from practice and propose possible directions for further research on soil contamination.
  • Propose priorities for innovative actions by suggesting ideas for Operational Groups to test solutions for the prevention of soil contamination or remediation of contaminated soils and other ways to exchange the practical knowledge gathered beyond the Focus Group.
