15 Pillar 1) Measuring/estimating soil C stock: 1.long term experiments in field 2.laboratory facilities soil microorganisms involved in the C cycle soil enzymatic activity 3.coupling in a GIS environment biophysical models (RothC) with: soil crop weather datasets of big relevance for policy makers willing to apply the 4/1000 initiative because they will have a certified territorial baseline to: start with reference This approach allows for estimation of stocks. It can be used to assess: Baseline Potential of selected practices to sequester C (CIS-Carbon in Italian Soils, MIPAAF) 16/11/

16 Pillar 2) Developing agricultural to sequester C and reduce emissions Holistic studies on: agro-ecology organic farming sector (SOILVEG, CORE-ORGANIC) crops diversity within farms longer rotations cover crops intercropping (AGROCAMBIO, FATIMA) conservation agriculture reduced tillage measures to reduce erosion practices to increase soil C sequestration rangeland (EFFICOND and MONACO, funded by the MIPAAF) 16/11/
