Different land use and management options in agriculture and agroforestry will be introduced with regard to their impact on relevant soil functions and production purposes in the context of crop production, bioenergy transformation, climate change and biodiversity. Specific emphasis will be put to the development of basic skills for soil and plant analysis as an essential tool for environmental assessments. This will be complemented by comprehensive information on bioenergy production and its impact on soils and sustainable land management.
