Speaker: Dr. Samuel Eze
Delivering soil health through an integrated assessment strategy
There are various programmes across the globe aimed at restoring degraded soils and/or minimizing the degradation of productive soils through the promotion of soil conservation practices. Out of the numerous factors known to influence the adoption of recommended soil conservation practices, farmers’ understanding of the soil is a key factor that is often overlooked by researchers. In this presentation, a hybrid approach to soil assessment that combines conventional soil testing with farmers’ observations will be discussed. The presentation will also explore how this approach helps to deliver soil health.
Dr Samuel Eze (Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Lincoln) is a Soil Scientist who studies the impacts of climate change, land use change and land management on the physical, chemical and biological indicators of soil functions. He seeks sustainable means of addressing key global challenges such as climate change, food insecurity, land degradation, and flooding by studying carbon, nutrient and water cycling in soil systems. Samuel has a wide range of soil science research experience across the UK and sub-Saharan Africa. He obtained his PhD and worked as a Soil Science Research Fellow at the University of Leeds before joining the University of Lincoln.
