The soil life after the permanent pastures implemented in November
6 de Fevereiro, 2023
We followed the sprouting of the first permanent pasture plants implemented by direct seeding in November 2022. This measure is one of the 10 good agrosilvopastoral practices recommended on the farms of the farmers associated with +SOLO +VIDA partner.
How permanent pastures fight desertification and prevent soil erosion?
They contribute to better livestock productivity;
They generate more nutritious pasture for animals and reduce the purchase and transport of external foodstuffs;
They strengthen the resilience of the Montado agrosilvopastoral system;
They capture and fix large quantities of CO2, enriching the soil with organic matter;
They improve the structure and fertility of the soils, retaining more water and generating more life with the appearance of microorganisms, such as fungi and bacteria that are beneficial to the soil.
They are also fundamental to ensure complete soil coverage and prevent erosion caused by rain and wind..
The Territorial Program +SOLO +VIDA is one of the four projects approved at national level by the EEAGrants Fund, notice “projects of preparation for extreme weather conditions and risk management in the context of climate change”
