Do you want to be part of our SDA community to exchange experiences and gain knowledge about the importance of soil biodiversity and the link with production and ecosystem services?
Tittle of the project: Soil biodiversity enhancement in European agroecosystems to promote their stability and resilience by external inputs reduction and crop performance increase – SoildiverAgro. (H2020 project 817819)

Project Coordinator: David Fernández Calviño, University of Vigo

Stakeholder engagement responsible: Tamara Rodríguez Silva, FEUGA

About SoildiverAgro project: The aim of SoildiverAgro project is to adopt new management practices and cropping systems that enhance soil genetic and functional biodiversity to reduce the use of external inputs while increasing crop production and quality, the delivery of ecosystem services and the EU agricultural stability and resilience.

Purpose of your participation: You are invited to participate in our study to identify farmers across Europe that perform sustainable soil management to enhance soil biodiversity and assess the motivations for it and the benefits they are obtaining, and also farmers who do not implement this strategy but would be interested in getting informed to adopt it. The idea is to put in contact through seminars, if explicitly authorized, farmers to share experiences and facilitate knowledge exchange with regard to soil biodiversity and the link with production and ecosystem services. We will contact you to invite you to several activities.

Time involvement: This research study may take up to approximately five years after your participation.

Risks and benefits: The risks associated with this study are none. We cannot and do not guarantee or promise that you will receive any benefits from this study. Your decision whether or not to participate in this study will not affect your participation in other SoildiverAgro events and activities.

Payment: You will not receive any reimbursement as payment for your participation.

Rights: Your participation is voluntary and you have the right to refuse to participate and to withdraw your participation or data at any time without any consequences. You have the right to refuse to answer particular questions.

You will be always the owner of data and samples collected.

Use of data/samples: The materials and data collected will become part of studies that may be presented at scientific or professional meetings or published in scientific or professional journals for communication and dissemination purposes of SoildiverAgro project. Personal Data shall be processed only for those administrative, operational, accounting, research and monitoring purposes that are necessary for the safe and reliable implementation of SoildiverAgro, without prejudice to the individual rights under the relevant laws.

Data storage, protection, retention and destruction: Data will be stored securely on private personal hard drives with access key and the private institutional SoildiverAgro DPV to prevent breaches of confidentiality during the period of the project and beyond the lifetime of this project. The University of Vigo protects the DPV from viruses and data piracy and makes periodic back-ups. In the event of the unlikely incidental findings, you will be communicated to decide if you aim to withdraw your data. By default, Personal Data shall be destroyed after a period of 36 months after the finalisation of the SoildiverAgro project.
