  • Challenging one last frontier: Understanding and improving deep rooting 

About the project

The project Deep Frontier aims at increasing the exploitation of the subsoil resources by deep roots in order to enhance food production in a sustainable way.

The results will be able to contribute to climate change mitigation and improved soil iodiversity through the increased organic matter input to the soil, especially to deep soil layers.
