Researchers at the Institute for Soil Sciences examined soil CO2 emission (soil respiration) and its main drivers (soil temperature, soil water content and plant activity) under field conditions. The study was published in Q1 journal Soil and Tillage Research.

A 75-day pot experiment by researchers of ATK TAKI aimed to investigate the fertiliser value and organic matter replenishment capacity of digested sewage sludge and the compost and vermicompost made from it. The results were published in the Q1 journal Agronomy.

In a greenhouse experiment, the effect of irrigation water containing Selenium was examined on different plants in different texture of soils. The results were published in the Q1 journal Plants.

In collaboration with the researchers of the University of Naples Federico II, our senior scientist Brigitta Szabó analysed the efficiency of European hydraulic pedotransfer functions (PTFs) available from the literature. The results of this research was published in the Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies, which is a highly ranked journal in the field of Water Science and Technology (D1).

In this study we compared the precision of habitat indication by the vegetation and soil microbial communities in four salt affected pastures in the Hungarian Great Plain.

Researchers from the Department of Soil Mapping and Environmental Informatics working with a senior scientist from ISRIC – World Soil Information and Wageningen University & Research have studied soil organic carbon (SOC) stock change between 1992 and 2010 at multiple aggregation levels in Hungary. Their results and findings have been published in Geoderma.

Researchers of the Department of Soil Biology together with the colleagues of the Department of Microbiology of the Eötvös Loránd University, studied the effect of soil salinity and pH on the microbial assemblages metabolic activity pattern and taxonomic composition of saline-sodic soil. The publication is available in the Microorganisms open-access journal.

The Institute for Soil Sciences, in cooperation with several Hungarian research institution has developed an Ammonia Gas Emission Model, called AGEM-S to assist the reduction of ammonia emissions in the Hungarian pig sector.

Researchers at the ELKH ATK Institute for Soil Sciences carried out the study of the soil-plant-water system in the cultivation of sweet corn with the application of biochar. The results were published in the Q1 category journal, Water.
