Researchers from ATK TAKI collaborating with researchers from the Department of Landscape Protection and Environmental Geography, University of Debrecen, have studied the possibility of high-resolution mapping and assessment of salt-affectedness in a study area close to Dunavecse on 85 hectares. The results and findings have been published open access in Agronomy.
Institute for Soil Sciences and Eötvös Loránd University studied the development of soil erosion in three vineyards in the Neszmély wine region over a period of one year. The results of the research are published in the journal Remote Sensing.
Gábor Szatmári, senior research fellow of our Institute, has won Bolyai János Research Scholarship with his application entitled "Quantification and propagation of spatial uncertainty in complex soil functions using up-to-date statistical approaches".
Methods enabling stakeholders for receiving information in a timely manner on plant stress in agricultural settings can help mitigate a possible decrease in plant productivity. In the framework of the OTKA 131792 project, periodic and monitoring soil and plant measurements are carried out on a small agriculturally dominated catchment in the Balaton-Uplands. The results were recently published in the Land journal.
